Tony Tolbert grew up watching his father welcome strangers in need into their home. The experience was not always great and people were not always appreciative, but that did not stop him from helping more people. When Tony became a successful lawyer and an UCLA lecturer he wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps. He felt inspired by the story of a family in Atlanta that had sold their home for 800 thousand Dollars and donated the money to charity. When he heard of Felicia Duke, a homeless single mom of four children Tony knew he had to do something. But what could he do?
What he did will surprise you. It not only gave Felicia emotional and physical space to recoup, recover, and heal, but it also enriched and liberated Tony’s life. His actions are now snowballing out as more people are inspired by his example and generosity.
