Homeless Man Gives Stranded Woman His Last $20. She Returned The Favour By Raising Over $300,000 For Him

Date December 1, 2017

A month ago, Kate McClure driving when her car ran out of gas on a dark highway. She decided that she could walk to the nearest gas station so she pulled her car over and got ready to trek. But a homeless man who saw what was going on decided to help.

According to Kate, the man named Johnny insisted on going to the gas station himself instead and asked her to stay in her car and lock all the doors. Not only did he make the trip for her, he also used all the money he had on him (which was $20) to purchase a can of gas for her.

Kate was so moved by this homeless' man kindness that she decided she was going to do everything possible to help him get back on his feet.

At the time, she did not have the cash to pay him back so the next day, she and her boyfriend returned to that spot to give him back his money. But the payback did not end there. Kate would often stop by Johnny's spot to chat with him. She also gave him money from time to time. Then she decided she was going to do more.

She set up a GoFundMe campaign for Johnny earlier this month. On the page, she said:

I wish that I could do more for this selfless man, who went out of his way just to help me that day. He is such a great guy and talking to him each time I see him makes me want to help him more and more.

The campaign took off and to date, it has raised over $393, 000, far surpassing the goal of $10,000 she had when she first set it up.

In an update on the fundraising page, Kate said Johnny plans to use the money to get an apartment and settle down comfortably while he looked for employment.

Truly believe that all Johnny needs is one little break. Hopefully, with your help, I can be the one to give it to him," Katie said.

This beautiful story is melting hearts all around and people are just so touched. It's hard for a person to part with money even when they have some to spare, but for someone who has basically nothing to give out all that was on him ois absolutely incredible. Johnny certainly deserves the attention, praise and money coming his way.
