Inspired by a panhandler on the subway in 2015, Leamy started a social movement called #heplaysforme. Since then, about once a week, he plays guitar and sings in NYC's Union Square on behalf of homeless individuals. He raises awareness and funds for those in need. By performing original music and earning spare change for the homeless, Leamy has fed and clothed the less fortunate and even found permanent shelter and a steady job for one man -- completely getting him off the streets.
Leamy has been featured on CBS This Morning, The New York Times, Huffington Post, Today.com, Now This News, Inside Edition, The New York Post, The New York Daily News, Maxim.com, The Chicago Sun Times, and a variety of other broadcast, print, online and social media outlets for his musical talent and community service.
