Conrad Carr walked from New York to Florida on a whim. He did it to raise money and awareness for animals displaced by hurricanes.
Singer Miley Cyrus used her non-profit The Happy Hippie Foundation to put Carr in touch with the Humane Society of the United States. Another friend set up a GoFundMe account on his behind. Actor Liam Hemsworth told his thousands of followers about Carr's journey, bringing new awareness to his walk down the East Coast.
Carr was thankful that it all seemed to fall into place.
