Stranger Buys Foreclosed Home... and Gives it Back to Owner

27 October 2008

There are still some kind people left in the world:

"It was a second chance given to Tracy by a stranger. Mock paid less than $30,000 for the property and said she plans to meet with Tracy in the next few weeks to work out the details." [Read the rest on WFAA]

This stranger may not make a very good capitalist, but the world can certainly do with more people like her. (Let's just hope she didn't buy it to rent it back to the owner!)

If you had the money, would you do the same?

    Oh, that is amazing. I am so happy for both of them, I wish I could do the same, or someone would do it for me, what with being out of work for 3 months and our first baby due in 4 weeks - but even then, I would still worry that someone more deserved should be getting a random act of kindness like this. Straight up, next Big Issue seller I see gets the change in my pocket because of this story.

    Mission Complete! Been keeping my eye out for a couple of weeks, saw one today, they ended up with the pricely sum of £3.20 - everything I had - and told him to not bother giving me the big issue. I got a "gaud bless ya" - and thats enough!

What do you think?
