We have all passed by a homeless man sitting on the side of the street begging for money at some point in our lives. And while you may feel bad for them, it doesn’t mean you always take out your wallet to help.
Many of us simply walk on by, even if we did have the change to spare.
That wasn’t the case for one woman named Cesia Abigail Baires. She completely changed the game when it came to helping out the homeless.
One day, a homeless man named Marcus walked into Abi’s Cafe in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
He approached the cafe’s owner, looked her right in the eye and asked her for some money.
“Why don’t you have a job,” she answered, adding, “You know nothing is given to me for free right?”
The homeless man then told Cesia that a job was actually what he wanted most in the world, but due to his criminal record, a job had proved impossible for Marcus – this is what forced him to retreat to a life in the streets.
His story hit Cesia right in the chest. The hard-working cafe owner decided immediately to put her money where her mouth is.
