One young woman’s kindness towards a homeless man changed his life in the most amazing way.

Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho was homeless for nearly 35 years and a local fixture in his hometown of São Paulo, Brazil—sitting in the same spot day in day out, writing his poetry.

Shalla Monteiro was blown away by Sobrinho’s writing talent and after befriending him she created a Facebook Page to help him achieve his dream of publishing a book.

What she ultimately achieved went so much further—and changed the man’s life forever—watch the amazing video below.
