Today, I’m joined by David Goin, a local server in Texas. 

Just like many of us, he’s now effectively unemployed and has a lot of extra time on his hands. 

So what should he do with that time?

David’s decided to take action, and has been creating and distributing care packages to the homeless during the quarantine. 

The homeless have very limited resources available to them at this time, so they need the extra help, and David’s stepped up to the challenge. 

It’s truly inspiring to hear what he’s done and he makes me excited to be more proactive myself. 

We talk about how he got into helping in this way, and discuss our experiences travelling around the world. 

A fascinating, down to earth man, he leaves me feeling inspired and excited for the future.
