One Dodger Clown’s Mission to Help L.A.’s Homeless

Dodgers

This clown’s charity work is nothing to laugh about.

Say hello to Hiccups Payaso. He’s arguably the No. 1 Dodgers fan in LA.

The season pass holder makes an effort to be at every home game cheering on his favorite team.

He’s a crowd favorite and is kind of a big deal at Dodger Stadium.

He’s even become a bobblehead.

But, wait. What’s up with that box of pizza?

He’s also an incredible philanthropist.

And Hiccups Payso never asks for anything in return, other than help from more community members.

Hiccups Pizza Project’s goal is to help 350 people per event.

Hiccups Payaso, who prefers to keep his real name private, can be found on LA’s Skid Row the last Sunday of every month.

Kudos, dude.

One of Hiccups’ biggest reasons for this work is to give children a chance to experience what it is like helping those in need.

Thank you, Hiccups. You are making LA better one Sunday at a time. Keep it up!

“Some people are very grateful; some people are embarrassed, but most people that are getting in line to get something for free are in line because there’s a need,” Hiccups Payaso said in an interview. “But you just got to come out here with an open mind and remember that everything we have: a roof, a key to our car or our house, a job. We shouldn’t take for granted because there are some people who don’t have absolutely nothing in the world.”
