Man Rents His House to Homeless Family for $1 a Month

He spent a year living at his mother’s house so they could have his.

From the Los Angeles Times

He’d been inspired by a magazine article about a family that sold their house, squeezed into a tiny replacement and donated to charity the $800,000 proceeds from the sale.

“It just struck me how powerful a gesture that was,” [Tony] Tolbert said. “It challenged me to think about what I could do, where I might have some overflow in my life.”

The man didn’t hide or remove any of his furniture or heirlooms, and moved back in with his mom. A single mother and her three kids took up residence there. A year (and very little contact with the woman) later, he’s ready to do it again.
