Glenn Williams had been living on the streets for the past 3 years, but had a respected reputation in the community. He was a very kind man to everyone he encountered.

Sofia asked Glenn to go to a local cafe with him, and he was overwhelmed by her generosity.

Sofia had big plans for the money she won…

“I knew that the money never really belonged to me. This money was meant to help him.”

After they enjoyed a meal together, Sofia revealed her next kind act.
