Getting a Bed for My Roommate
Organized by: Peter Hung
We live in NYC. My roommate has endured a very tough life and is currently strangled by student loans, victimized by bank fraud, injured in a major accident, and months of unemployment as a result of being unfairly fired. For this reason he could hardly afford anything and has been sleeping on air mattresses that always break in the end. He has to sleep on the couch which is uncomfortable for him because it is too small. Although he just found a job recently, his lack of proper rest is really catching up to him and he's starting to get sick. I'm very worried for him but am tied for cash myself because I'm also looking for a job myself having graduated from school a month ago. I'm looking to buy him this mattress through Amazon (http://amzn.to/1gpp7sI), which is $152.99, I put $160 for possible shipping and other costs. My roommate is one of the nicest and hardworking people I have ever met, and it's really terrible to see so many bad things happen to him all at once, to a 23-year-old guy who just wants to make a comfortable living in NYC.
