Note posted at bus stop lands homeless man job.

A homeless man in the U.K. left a note on a bus stop explaining that he was looking for work and his plea has become life changing.Anthony Johnson’s note said he was searching for a job “to make life worth living,” and thankfully, 16-year-old Charlotte Howard saw it.

The note also explains that Johnson would do a free trial for work and doesn’t do drugs or drink and Charlotte says when she saw it at the bus stop, it “broke her heart,” so she decided to post an appeal on social media. “Everyone deserves a home,” she says. Anthony, who has spent nine years on the streets, said: “The reaction after Charlotte posted the note was weird. I was suddenly bombarded with certain things. “It’s not like I haven’t previously been asking for help but all it takes is an open-minded person like Charlotte to come along and help. She saw me and recognised my position and decided she wanted to do something to help. “I wouldn’t have got anywhere looking for a job if it wasn’t for her.

The teen asked for donations to buy a camper that was for sale online and people were happy to contribute. When the story got around, the camper was donated to Johnson and over $1,300 has come in to help him get back on his feet.

A man named Nelson Smith who owns a landscaping business has hired Anthony after reading the note. So now he’s getting shelter and work thanks to his message and a teen who saw it and wanted to help. “Getting a job is about having something to do rather than rotting away on a bench,” Johnson says. “It’s about having something in your life that you can be proud of.”
