I wanted to post something just for you that is a current event, and a good news story!

Homeless Man Donates Money To Help Out-Of-Work Mother

Inspired General

homeless man pays mom's hotel billA year ago, she had a good job at a bank in the suburbs. Her 10-year-old son had a safe home.

But then the world came crashing down when she lost her job and, afterward, her house. Soon, they were living in her car.

That's when a knight in shining armor showed up -- a homeless man who wanted to repay the woman's previous kindness to him. With money he collected from pedestrians, he started paying for a hotel room, so she and her son could stay off the streets.

He's collected thousands of dollars since September and donated it all to her.

She is grateful that, after years of giving her own money to charities and treating homeless panhandlers with respect and dignity, "an angel was waiting for me" in the end.

Now, I would love to see someone step up to the plate and help that man get a job and get a place to live, etc. That would certainly make this story even better.
