It’s hard to hear because we know it happens too often. Gordon and Dee Head are in their 70s. They moved across the country from Texas to Florida when Gordon was promised a job at a hospital.
When Gordonand his wife arrived, he was told there was no job. Unable to access his veteran retirement benefits, the couple is forced to live off of social security, which isn’t enough for a place to live.
The couplewasliving in their carlocated ina storeparking lot for weeks with their three dogs. What’s even more heartbreaking: the couple said their adult children didn’tseem to care.
Then something unexpected happened. Brandi Dussing, her sister, and friendsaw the couple sleeping in the car. Dussing insisted she wanted to buy food for the couple and their dogs.
Then she did them one better. She found foster homes for their three dogs while the Heads figured things out, then Dussing shared their story onFacebook. Since then, she has raised over $14,500 for the couple on YouCaring.
The day I asked God to send us some angels, they started showing up, Gordon said.
Because one person decided to stop and help the Heads, they now have a place to live. Dussing actions shows us all that one tiny action can have a massive effect.
