He Heard Kids Making Fun Of An Old Guy’s House, So He Took Matters Into His Own Hands.
It's amazing how small, innocuous interactions can end up changing up somebody's life. That's exactly what happened when Josh Cyganik overheard local kids making mean comments about 75-year-old Leonard Bullock's house. The house had fallen into disrepair, and the teenagers were being insensitive. After Cyganik overheard them, he put this on his Facebook page:
I was at work a couple weeks ago and I heard 2 teenage boys walked by this old man’s house…[and] they said loud enough for me to hear ‘look at this crappy house they just need to burn it down’!… So I’m asking if anyone that wants to help this Saturday to volunteer their time to help paint this gentleman’s house!
What happened next will restore your faith in humanity.
Here is the house that was the subject of the teenagers' cruel words.
And here is Cyganik's original Facebook post. It's enough to break your heart.
Much to his surprise, over 95 volunteers showed up to help fix up the house. Many of them even came from out of state to helpMuch to his surprise, over 95 volunteers showed up to help fix up the house. Many of them even came from out of state to help
They were able to transform the house with a little bit of hard work, turning it from this....
And finally, to this. It doesn't even look like the same house!
In the end, Cyganik taught the entire community a valuable lesson. “I was raised to respect the people who came before you," Cyganik said. "To help others out who don’t have much”
Next, an entire village was transformed with the help of some artists.
