Two high school seniors bumped into Leroy Levi Bailey while out in Brighton, Michigan. They had camera equipment with them, and decided to record his story in order to help with his cause.Three decades ago, Leroy found himself homeless on the streets of Buffalo, NY, for almost two years. He was appalled by the lack of funding and facilities available for the homeless.One day while he was praying, he believed he received a message from God urging him to walk the USA to create awareness for homelessness. So he packed up and began walking, and has covered over 8,000 of his 12,000 mile goal so far.He ultimately hopes to raise funds for homelessness, in order to provide those without homes better shelters.
