I love RAK!
I was coming in to work before christmas, and there is this man who is always out 7am to 7pm, with carts and signs collecting cans. He has a sign that
says cans, he never bothers anyone for them but is very pleasant and grateful to anyone who does drop off cans. He never asks for money, he never begs
for cigarettes or anything he works his ass off.
I usually give him what ever cans I have in the truck, or that I set aside at home and bring them to him because I see him literally every day.
Sometimes when I have time I bring him a coffee and give him a cigarette, sometimes he buys me coffee.

blew my last cash on presents for xmas and had to leave it there. I couldn't believe it.) So I was in a pretty down and out mood, and the one day on
my way in to work I stopped to drop off some cans and this man hands me a christmas card with my name, telling me he's thankful for all the time I
spend talking with him, for the cigarettes, and for being a friend. Inside were two hockey tickets. He saved up and bought them for me. I was
absolutely flabbergasted that this man who works 12 hrs a day 7 days a week collecting cans to live spent all this money to get me some guy who spends
maybe 5 mins here and there when I have cans talking to him such an extreme gift. The card with my name on it would have been enough. I was so
