Changing someone’s mindset is a tough thing to do. We hold onto our opinions firmly in life, and changing our viewpoint does not come easily. This woman admits that if she had seen this homeless man on the street, on any other day, she would have ignored him and made it a point not to make eye contact. On any other day, however, she most likely would not have been stranded in the city once the trains stopped running.
This man who I probably would of avoided eye contact with if he asked for spare change, completely changed such a negative event into the most eye opening event in my life.”
The 21-year-old was drunk, alone, and unsure of what to do next when this guy decided to go out of his way to help her. Every day on the streets, he is the one who needs help, but people just walk on by and ignore him instead of going out of their way to help him. Nicole decided that she wanted to do something to thank him. She took this selfie and posted the story online…but once it went viral, she decided to set up a crowdfunding campaign to help get Mark off of the streets!
After raising £13,143, she has reached out to several organizations that will be able to help Mark get back on his feet with the money, and many people are glad to have helped him on his journey. Such a caring person deserves all the help that people can give!
