Homeless Tiktoker gets $60,000 from fans after he shared the hardship he faces every day.
TikTok, known in China as Douyin, is a video-sharing social networking service owned by Chinese company ByteDance.
The social media platform is used to make a variety of short-form videos, from genres like dance, comedy, and education, that have a duration from fifteen seconds to one minute.
The homeless tiktoker, Gabriel McAdams, may have gotten his break through after he posted on his page that “I cannot remember the last time I have the ability to take a shower or wear a clean clothes or eat warm food. I don’t even know what I could possibly do with such an amount of money.” He said.
“Right now, I am just planning to stay in school,stay fed,find a place to stay and stay warm.”
Earlier, Gabriel McAdams created a new Tiktok account just to solicit for funds but that first video really went viral which also gave me huge number of followers.
He had posted
“My name is Gabriel,I am 25 and I have been homeless for over a year now. For the last two days, I have been sleeping behind this church(pointing to his current place of abode) inside this cardboard boxes.”
” I use to have a tent which was gifted to me until a lady saw me living in such tent and asked if I had a gun and that her dad is afraid for his life and two days later my tent was dragged out of the woods.”
“I do hard jobs to keep myself fit but is looking for an actual job but needs a new birth certificate, social security and an ID before I can actually be hired.”
Barely 24 hours after the story went viral,Gabriel is now worth a little over $$94,000 and we are just happy for him.
