James Moss of Colorado was reminded how strong the power of kindness can be after thousands of strangers raised over $30,000 for him and his son.
Moss was featured on #GoBeKind, a YouTube series by philanthropist and motivational speaker Leon Logothetis, who performs random acts of kindness for people on the street. While being interviewed by Logothetis, the single father revealed he moved from New York to Denver for a job, but became homeless when the offer fell through, according to FOX 31 Denver.
Moss expressed his desire to make a better life for his son and explained how his faith has inspired him to never give up. Well, Logothetis paid it forward by giving him $1,000 and a seven-day stay in a hotel – but Moss’ luck didn’t end there.
Kayla Heskett of Kansas was so touched by his story, she created a GoFundMe page to help Moss get back on his feet. It’s since raised $34,380 in just five days.
