When it comes to random acts of kindness, Tony Tolbert, a lecturer at UCLA, has set the bar high. Forget donating spare change or forking over leftovers, this guy gave up his house to a homeless family for an entire YEAR. At age 51, Tolbert moved back in with his mother and rented his three-bedroom, fully-furnished home to Felicia Dukes, a mother of four, for $1 a month, according to the Huffington Post.
Tolbert said he chose the Dukes family for this generous act to keep the family from being split apart.

Tony Tolbert
Tony Tolbert, of UCLA School of Law, is shown outside of the home he has been letting families live in rent free.
When Tony Tolbert turned 50 last year, he marked the occasion by moving in with his mother.
The decision wasn't about money. He's a Harvard-educated attorney, on the staff of UCLA's law school. And it wasn't because his mother wanted or needed him home.
It was Tolbert's response to the sort of midlife milestone that prompts us to take stock. Instead of buying a sports car, he decided to turn his home - rent free - over to strangers.
"It just struck me how powerful a gesture that was," Tolbert said.
When Tolbert first shared his story with me, he wanted me to write about it but not name him. He didn't want publicity. He just hoped that, since he'd gotten the idea from something he'd read, maybe someone reading my column would be inspired to ... do what?
So Tolbert left the good furniture for the woman who moved in. He didn't hide his grandmother's heirloom quilt or put away the fine art.
"I told her straight out, this is my home. I'm leaving these things for you to enjoy. I want you to be comfortable here."
That was a learning process for Tolbert: "It was a good exercise in not grasping and hanging on to stuff.... Short of them burning the house down, I had to accept that whatever they tear up, it can also be repaired."
And he had to accept that generosity and gratitude aren't always a matched pair.
Tony, you are awesome!
