A Purple Knight Rises, 19Yr Old Batman Helps San Jose’s Homeless

“You don’t have to be super-rich to do this. You don’t have to be super old or super young. You can be whatever age. You can be anybody.”

“Hey, Batman!” “What’s up, Batman?” “It’s Batman, bro!”

A 19-year-old San Jose man (who wants to remain anonymous), has taken matters into his own hands, dedicating hours a day looking out for his fellow San Jose man and woman, handing out water, food, and in one case, a life saving sugary treat to a homeless woman having a diabetic seizure.

“I want to draw attention to the issues that people don’t like to look at,” he said. “And Batman is very attention-grabbing. And purple Batman is even more attention-grabbing. So I figured I’d use that to help show people what’s going on in San Jose.” Says the Purple Knight

San Jose at one point spent 1.3 Million on a Homeless Program, only to shut it down 1 month later

A Creative by nature, he tells Mercury News that he has a passion for costume-making and is headed to Rochester Institute of Technology to study industrial design
