It was on a sunny day in July 2016 when a young girl walked out of a store and happened to see a man weeping, whom she approached and started talking to. Upon learning that he was homeless, she made the “saddest face” and took out her purse.

Kenyatta Lewis and her daughter, then a 6-year-old, saw a man sitting on the ground and crying when they stepped out of a store in Norfolk, Virginia. Her daughter, Janiyah, asked her mother if she had noticed the man and wanted to know why he was crying.

When Lewis told Janiyah that the man was maybe just sad, Janiyah thought “maybe he’s hot and thirsty,” and walked over to chat with him.

“Hi sir be happy it’s a nice day it’s not raining. Are you hot? Why don’t you go home the ground is dirty?” she asked the man.

He told Janiyah that he did not have a home. She made the “saddest face,” and said: “So that means you’re homeless. So you have no food because you have no refrigerator.”

Janiyah took out a few dollars and her drink to give to the man. “Please go eat. It would make me happy. I like McDonald’s you should go there,” she said.

Lewis saw that Janiyah, through her kind gesture, had made this man’s day.

Posting the story on Facebook, she wrote: “On top of that 2 more people came up and gave money as well. We had a small conversation and he explained his trailer burnt down and he lost everything including his wife. I felt for him. It just warms my heart.”

“A 6-year-old lead by example this morning. AWESOME ! Kids see no color and that’s exactly how it should be. It’s not just a statement saying that the children are our future, it’s a FACT. That gives me a little more hope for the world,” she added.

The story has been shared more than 215,000 times since then. The mother and daughter started a GoFundMe campaign in order to help more homeless folk.
