Toothless and Homeless and Amazing, Doug Seegers

Being Homeless is not the life people lay in bed at night and dream about.  People become homeless for a variety of reasons, we do what we can to help along the way; but every now and then you see, read or hear something like this..............something that makes you smile and say Thank You God.

Please turn on your speakers and enjoy!

And Proceeds To Blow Everyone Away


This is Doug Seegers, an out-of-work carpenter who was born in New York. He’s a man in his sixties and up until recently he lived off the money he was given by people in the streets of Nashville. In 2012, Aaron Espe, a musician from Minnesota, posted a YouTube video of Doug singing a song he wrote many years ago called “Going Down To The River.” His vibe and his haunting voice made the video go popular, and everyone got the chance to hear his unique voice. This time, he got together with country stars Jill Johnson and Magnus Carlson to sign his original song. The YouTube description says, “This man deserves to get a roof over his head so help him become famous by spreading the word!” It makes me very happy to see someone like him is starting succeed in the most unexpected way!


 All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.

  3. Thank you Sandy for posting this article. I had read about Doug Seegers on the Blog from the group I had belonged to when I lived in Nashville. This should make us think when we see someone who is homeless, you just never know where they came from or what they can do with a little help.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
