Homeless Man Gives His Only Money for a Young Girls Taxi
A homeless man with a huge heart gave up his last £3 (about $4.60) to pay for a taxi for a young lady to get home safely.
“Robbie” a homeless man in Preston, England opted for a young students safety over the possibility of enjoying a meal. He saw a need and jumped in to help 22 year-old Dominique Harrison-Bentzen.
Dominique is a student at the university there and was out with friends that evening. It was 3am. Her cell phone was dead, she’d lost her credit cards, had no money and couldn’t find her friends. Robbie offered up all the money he had.
Dominique was in fact so touched by this that she set her mind to raising enough money for Robbie to use as a down-payment on a place to stay. Her initial goal was to raise $780. She raised money by spending the night on the streets and having people sponsor her for $4.60, the amount offered by Robbie for her taxi. She busted that goal and raised over $50,000.
But finding Robbie again proved difficult. Her mother and she drove around for four nights looking for him. They were on a mission! Finally she saw her new friend. In addition to helping Robbie, she is also being advised on how to best help other homeless residents in the Preston neighborhood.
