A generous Los Angeles man has moved back in with his mother in order to give his fully-furnished home to an out-of-luck family rent-free for a whole year.
Tony Tolbert, 51, said his father Jimmy, who is suffering from Alzheimer's, set an example of generosity that inspired him to donate the home to a needy family he had never met before, CBS reports.
The Harvard-educated lawyer told the network he could hardly remember a time when his father did not have a person in need staying in their family house.
So he sought out a women's shelter and found homeless mother-of-four Felicia Dukes, who had been sharing a single room at the shelter with three of her children.
"You don't have to be Bill Gates, or Warren Buffett, or Oprah [to be generous]," Mr Tolbert told CBS.
"We can do it with whatever we have. So for me, I have a home I can make available."
Not only does the generous offer get the family into a home, it allows Ms Dukes to be reunited with her eldest son who was too old to live at the shelter.
"My heart just fills up. I'm just really happy," a tearful Ms Dukes said.
Mr Tolbert's mother supported her son moving home, saying he had "always been generous".
