One Good Turn . . .

by duncanr

a helping hand2a woman in Houston opened her house to a homeless man – giving him somewhere to stay

later, he repaid her kindness by pulling her and her two young grand-daughters to safety when an electrical fault set the house on fire while they were asleep – http://tinyurl.com/jkb2ljp

hhmmm, I’d say that makes them just about even ?

A Samaritan in New York

by duncanr

it was bloody cold the other day – despite the central heating being on, I still had to don extra clothes in an attempt to keep warm

but I’m one of the lucky ones – some folk don’t have access to a home (never mind one equipped with central heating) or the luxury of extra layers of clothing to combat the cold, but must rely on the kindness of others

fortunately for those in that situation, there are a few good people around . . . like this good samaritan on the New York City subway who gave a shivering, homeless guy the shirt off his back

Judge Not by Appearance

screengrab of draft postsI’ve had a post sitting in my draft folder since xmas eve

it’s the sort of post I like – that shows folk in a good light – but some gut feeling stopped me from posting it, till now. Read my original preamble to the post, watch the video, then click ‘continue reading’ tab . . .

folk end up on the street for a variety of reasons and those that do are not all drug addicts, alcoholics, or petty thieves

what held me back from putting this vid on madhatters?

it was a feeling that . . .

Those with Little give More

by duncanr

Now I’d like to think this vid is for real because I share the view that it is often those who have least in life themselves that are more generous to others (at least that’s my informal observation from the number of charity fund-raising activities I’ve been involved with in the past) but . . . well, watch the vid. Form your own opinion and read my comment afterward

Homeless Man Gets Home

by duncanr

a wee while back, we posted a vid showing a homeless man, Eric, being gifted $1000 – under the guise that he had a winning lottery ticket

https://madhatters.me.uk/2014/03/05/homeless-man-wins-lottery/

he immediately offered to share his winnings with the guy who had given him the ticket

this act of generosity touched many people – leading to this . . .

Homeless Man ‘Wins’ Lottery

by duncanr

A homeless man is given a lottery ticket in lieu of cash.

The donor takes him to a store to see if it is a winning ticket

It is not – but the donor and the store owner have agreed earlier to pretend it is and present the man with $1000

A nice gesture to give the man $1000 but is it only me that feels a vague disquiet about this vid and the deception practiced on this man?

Can’t help feeling donor should just have given the man the $1000. The elaborate ruse and filming of the homeless man’s reaction seems just a tad like exploiting the man for the sake of self-promoting/publicising the donor ?
