An Ambitious and Talented College Student Helps Lots of People Have a Happy Holiday


When many people celebrate their winter holidays with their families, it often doesn’t occur to them that some people don’t have anywhere to go come December. The talented college student in this video has been able to overcome her very deprived and abusive background, becoming academically and socially successful in the process. However, she still has nowhere to go for the holidays, which is a consistent source of grief in her life.

She actually created a Craigslist advertisement about wanting to find a family to visit for the holidays. Not only did she get a lot of offers from families, she got a lot of offers from young people who were in her situation. She ended up matching a lot of families and young people together, while also finding a family for herself.

People should please SHARE this heartwarming and inspiring video on Facebook, especially as it gets close to the holidays.
