Sam Berndale worked all kinds of jobs in Seattle and Everett before he became homeless. While between jobs, he started selling Real Change to help make ends meet. And, he says, he needed it.
“I had a thousand dollars a month to pay on rent. My light bill was always in trouble. I gave up my car and then lost my apartment.”
Then, his life took a turn. He moved to the Philippines, where he planned to marry a woman he’d met online. Unfortunately, he says, he “wound up losing her.”
