INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – For some people, most of life is unaffordable, which led to the creation of the #DoGoodFriday campaign.

“We were just trying to think, you know, what can we do for the community? How can we get out here and really show people that it doesn’t really take a lot of money? I mean, we only had, I think, $28 to do this,” Danielle Neveles, the #DoGoodFriday co-founder said.

It all started when Neveles and some friends decided to feed some of the homeless of downtown Indianapolis.

They imagined they might be able to collect enough for 30 people. But, with the help of several local restaurants, they found food for about 100 people.

The recipients were surprised by the generosity, and thankful.

“Yeah, I’m very thankful for it, you know what I mean? Cause we don’t get to have too much out here, you know?” Gordon Gholston said.

They used the Handlebar bike to deliver some of the meals.

Other volunteers delivered sandwiches from boxes they carried around downtown. Organizers say they may have another #DoGoodFriday, but going after a different need.
