One woman is making national headlines for doing one thing everyone should do – treating homeless people with compassion.

A man named Marcus walked one day into Abi’s restaurant, just like he had been doing many times before. He asked for money. Instead of just giving him charity, Abi asked him why he didn’t have a job because nothing in life comes for free and that’s when she learned that because of his criminal past Marcus was virtually unemployable.

What she did next made her story go viral and changed Marcus’ life forever.
