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.

  • Just one kind person is a piece of light that illuminates this dark world & eventually if there is more kindness in the world the light will become greater than the darkness❤️

  • The ones that disliked are the people who will be homeless in the future... In life we always think about ourselves and not other people even the ones that are struggling to survive Let's start changing our ways for the good of all people out there...

  • I am always seeing homeless or poor people ask for money to my dad and he always says no and I always think if I were in dad's place then I would have totally done something nice and maybe even invite the person home maybe one day....

  • Im sure jehovah is happy because of what you have done! You are an amazing person:) Im a jehovahs witnesses and in my religion we believe that one day jesus (the son of jehovah god) will fight against all the evil in a war called Armageddon, some faithful people will stay with him in the sky and some will be brought to a perfect paradise:) the bible also says that evil people , satan and his demons will all be destroyed and in this new world, people will not suffer nor die ever again:) Just thought it would be interesting for anyone reading to know this:) that's why i shared it:) If you want to get in touch with the Jehovah's witnesses, just Google the nearest kindom halls near you or download the app JW. Library on any device and give it a shot! We only live once so why not experience the Jehovah's witnesses meeting? If you don't like it, you're not forced to go if you dont want to!:). Everyone can go and you dont need to pay, everything is free. Please consider giving the kindom halls a change just for one time or just praying to jehovah! Thank you all so much for listening to my comment and hope you all have A fantastic day! Bye

  • I once help the homeless, so in 2017-2018 my mum ( she has a restaurant and best chef of bay of Plenty), my brother and sister. we start a thing called feed the homeless. so every 2 times a week we would go down to the busiest place, and make warm big dinners. It was very small at first but then people started to join that also had restaurants. So all of us would come down and make dinner something care pack with tooth burst and daily needs and all the homeless became great friends. One day at my school me and my siblings did this thing were kids would Bring us books and old clothing and we would give it to the homeless, and we got a lot of thing.
