Tyler Baltierra Sleeps on the Street in New Orleans!
Well, it's official. Tyler Baltierra is the best person on the planet. We expect him to sprout a set of fluffy angel wings any day now.
This sweet-as-pie teen dad is all kinds of wonderful, but he's taken his do-goodery ways to a whole new level. How, you ask? Tyler spent a night on the street as a way of showing his support to at-risk youth at Covenant House, New Orleans.
"Tonight, I am sleeping on the street & experiencing homelessness for just 1 night to show homeless youth that they are not alone," Tyler tweeted on November 15, adding, "Everybody, these kids live in the covenant home in Louisiana, so yes they have a 'warm' place to go, I am doing this for those kids."
Tyler set up a makeshift bed on cement and doubled up his layers for a long night in the great outdoors — but it doesn't look like he got much sleep. "OK this cement hurts lol!" he tweeted at 2:30 a.m.. "I learned so much today at @covenanthouseNO sleeping on the streets is a wake up call! #4homelessyouth #inspired."
Despite the rough night's sleep, Tyler ended up having a great experience. "Honestly...in the end … it was all worth it," he posted along with a picture of his sleeping bag. "Here to inspire & ended up being inspired had influential talks with the kids #feelingaccomplished."
Anyone else feel like they want to get their charity on? Tyler is such an inspiration!
