So a single mom with three kids, down on her finances, as one might expect, walks into a convenient store and buys a lottery ticket. Lady luck was with her on this night, as she won $200! Woo-Hoo! Time to buy some extra groceries and maybe some new clothes for the kids, right?
You see, when this happened to single mother of three, Sofia Andrade, her exuberance was lost when she stepped outside of that convenient store and saw an old, homeless man sitting out in the cold in sub-freezing temperatures.
When Andrade had it confirmed to her that the man had nowhere to spend the night after asking him, she took her money and bought a motel room for him for the night.
But it gets even better!
She then went home and blasted out on Facebook where the man was staying, giving the name of the motel and the room number. She asked that anyone who could spare some money, clothes or food to please swing by and help the man out. People came in droves!
She also opened a GoFundMe account in the man’s name, and as of this writing, they’ve raised more than $8,000 for the man, more than enough for him to get into a rented home!
This is definitely one of those stories that will restore your faith in humanity!
