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.
When it comes to random acts ..., 1 May 2014 [cached]
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.
