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, 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!

There was always a room available for anyone who needed it in Anthony Tolbert's childhood home. "As far back as I can remember, there was always someone staying at our house," he says. That hospitality gave Tolbert a sense of connection to others regardless of class, race, or income. Now he's carrying the tradition forward by lending his house to homeless families for year-long stays.
Tolbert, a student advisor and professor at UCLA School of Law, got the idea when he read about an Atlanta family, the Salwens, who sold their mansion, bought a more modest home, and donated half the profit from the sale to charity. That, along with his study of the Buddhist principles of compassion and material detachment, convinced Tolbert to move into the guest bedroom in his parents' house so a homeless family with young children could live in his comfortable three-bedroom house for the whole of 2012. He lent his house to another family in 2013.
Tolbert expects to lend his house again next year, and he recently heard from a former law student who wants to lend her house to her homeless clients. He hopes his story will continue to inspire others to follow suit, just as the Salwen family's story inspired him.
