A senior couple travelled all across the US in the hope of finding new jobs and a new life. When they reached their destination, they had no hope left, until these teenage angels arrived to make everything better.
This is a story about a senior couple, Gordon and Dee Head, who travelled from Texas to Florida in the hope of finding a new life. Gordon had been offered a job, but when they arrived in Florida, the offer was retracted.
Naturally, the couple were devastated. They needed that job, and they’d spent a whole lot of time and resources getting to the Sunshine State. In fact, they were in such a bad spot that they had to live in their car on a Walmart parking lot for three whole weeks! They also had to share the vehicle with their trio of dogs.
It was a terrible situation and Gordon did the only thing he could: he prayed. He asked for help from above, and his prayers were answered when a bunch of helpful girls arrived on the scene.
Brandi Dussing and her friends noticed the couple sleeping in the parked car. They offered the couple some food. Gordon and Dee refused at first, but eventually gave in.
But more was in store for the Texan couple. Brandi and her friends created a page on the “YouCaring” fundraiser program. The page appealed to anyone who wanted to lend a bit of cash to help out the Heads. The girls wrote on the page that Mrs. Head was unable to move as her feet had swollen up, while also stating that the 75-year-old Mr. Head had recently undergone a heart operation.
The sympathetic plea didn’t fall on deaf ears; the girls managed to raise a whopping $13,000 from 350 generous people.
In an interview, Gordon Head and his wife told reporters how they’d felt so lost and helpless on that parking lot. A teary-eyed Mr. Head also revealed how glad he was that God had sent these young “angels” to help him and his wife.
But Brandi and her gang of good Samaritans are still not finished! Now, they’re doing all they can to help the Heads get a new home. Meanwhile, Mr. Head, encouraged by the reversal of fortunes, is optimistic about landing a low-intensity job in the construction sector.
Though in their mid-seventies, the Heads have been given a new lease of life and will always remember the act of kindness that turned their world around for the better.
