Sup Travellers?! I've got a story here about a "good Samaritan" from Minneapolis who is known widely throughout the city as the "Sandwich man". Why is he called the "Sandwich man"? Well I think the name is self explanatory. He gives people sandwiches. But the people that benefit from his sandwiches are the ones in need.

From the time Allan Law was 11 or 12, he figured out that he was put on this earth to help others. When he retired from his career as a teacher 16 years ago, he made a promise to spend his nights on the streets of Minneapolis delivering goods for those in need. To the delight of thousands of locals, that's precisely what he's done.

His minivan is adorned with the number 363 on the side, but contrary to what people think, it doesn't represent the number of days he does his kindhearted handiwork. Rather, it represents the number of days a year that people don't think about the homeless. He's on a mission to end all of that, and with 17 freezers in his living room to store his sandwiches, he's well on his way.

So how does he afford to give away all those sandwiches if he's a retired teacher? Is he some kind of millionaire? No, he's just an average Joe with an average bank account but he gets help. Last year alone he had the help of 800 churches, Civic, and business groups to dole out his goods. 

I respect this man's selflessness. Can you imagine what the world will be like if there were more people like him? Hats off to Allan Law. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
