During the winter, Maddie and her boyfriend took a trip to Walgreens to get some basic essentials - snacks, chips, drinks, etc. - when they spotted a man sitting outside the store. He looked like he was in his 50's, he had a long grey beard, and he had tattered clothes. The man looked like he could really using a helping hand, so Maddie's boyfriend decided to approach him and learn more about his story.
After her boyfriend gave her a look and signaled for her to come over, Maddie decided to join in on the conversation.
After talking to the man, Maddie and her boyfriend learned that the man was experiencing homelessness. He had traveled all the way from Texas and was trying to find his way back home, but he ran into many obstacles along the way. He shared all the struggles he had experienced throughout his life - all of the hardships he had to face - and Maddie and her boyfriend decided they needed to do something to help. They walked back into Walgreens and bought the man some essentials - food, water, bread, etc.
When they walked back out of the store and approached the man, he refused their kindness, at first. But after Maddie and her boyfriend insisted, he couldn't be happier - he felt so grateful to meet such kind, caring people who wanted to help him. Maddie decided she wanted to do more for him, so she ran to her car to grab him a blanket she had in her trunk. When she gave the man her blanket, his face completely lit up.
After that day, Maddie hasn't seen the man around her town. She hopes that he was able to make his way back to Texas and that he's able to watch this video - maybe through social media. When she looks back, she can proudly say to herself, "We helped someone who was homeless." And, she wants everyone to know how big of an impact you can have on someone's life if you do the same.

  • Here’s a story from my history teacher Her and her daughter went to New York City to see a show, her daughter saw a homeless man and it broke her. She felt bad for all these people without homes, so she dedicated her life to helping homeless people, out of the goodness of her heart, not because someone wanted her to

  • I remembered one time me and my sister was about to go back home then two girls came and want money I told them I left my wallet back home then I remembered I didn't eat my bread so I gave it to them and told them " This is the only thing I have you both must share it " I know one Fudgey Bar( the chocolate bread) wasn't enough because it was small but that was the only thing I could do to help them

  • These new channels are just horrible as soon as they came out everyone realized that they were copying story booth now the comments on story booth videos are all just Story booth : real story Other channel : fake story And I am sick of it I remember when story booth first came out the comments we're sharing their stories and talking about the video, but that's just my opinion no one else cares what everybody cares about is likes. Btw this story is so awesome I love how you said he was so happy it really is nice to know that there are people like this!

  • Most people usually don't go and help some one on the streets.NOT MY FAMILY I'm not trying to brag sorry but it's like if we see a homeless person many times we get something for him or her and one time my dad was getting some groceries and when he came home he said"sorry-my name-i gave the Hawaiian bread to a homeless man"and another time my grandma gave us money and when we walked out the mall my sister saw a homeless person and gave him some money.Um this one I did but it wasn't that big,I saw this homeless man and it was really windy and he had a bag for trash and it flew away so I ran out of the line(while my brother was watching)and ran into the street to get the bag(it did look like there was a car coming but there wasn't )

  • My mom and I bought some Tim Hortons and a woman came up to our van and asked if we had any food or water to spare. We had a couple of donuts and some pizza we bought for the trip home so we gave her a donut, some water, a slice of pizza and $20 bucks. She thanked us and carried on her way.
