Man offers his house to homeless family for a year

A 51-year-old man is moving back in with his parents so a homeless family can live in his house instead. Watch the CBS video here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/02/tony-tolbert-offers-his-l_n_2397283.html?utm_hp_ref=good-news

Tony Tolbert’s offer is good for one full year. According to CBS, the spare bedroom in his childhood home in Los Angeles frequently went to people in need, which inspired his own version of the act.

The story comes days after we wrote about Grace McNulty, who like Tolbert, found inspiration to help the homeless from her father. He died in August, and so Mcnulty, 10, spent Christmas Day serving full turkey dinners to homeless people, honoring his wish to alleviate their suffering during the holidays.

Additionally, a barber in Salt Lake City has been helping the homeless for the past 19 years. Every Monday, he gives free haircuts to clean up their look or jumpstart a job search.

Doesn't this inspire you to do more?
