While traveling via MegaBus (a great value for those of you who travel back and forth to Cali) I met Edwin Nombre. Edwin is an aspiring film maker and an actor on a journey he describes as 'living off the kindness of others'.
It is truly inspiring to listen to Edwin as he shows his gifts while sharing numerous stories of kind acts from strangers is. Edwin was on his 106th day of "110 Days One Dollar a Day" journey. Edwin’s journey began in Manila. During these 106 days Edwin has been to NYC, New Jersey, Washington State, Oregon, California and Nevada.
Edwin has used Social Media to make friends and followers all over the world. I noticed Edwin when he walked up and started a conversation with a group of young men going to the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas. Edwin spoke wearing a smile that would brighten any room. I could not help but listen to his fascinating story.
Edwin’s mother’s home was made available to travelers at no cost. Edwin said people never asked them for help; they just helped others. He wondered what it would be like to be the one who needs help. Edwin embarked on a journey to see how much help he would get without asking for it. So far, looking at his gifts he is doing well. Edwin has met over 1000 people.
Edwin is traveling to Vegas wearing a "True Manila" shirt in hopes of doing an interview with Manny Pacquiao. Prayerfully he will find open doors and favor. I’m looking forward to seeing the Pacquiao interview and future screen work from this personable young man who is living off the kindness of strangers.
