Here are the facts of homelessness.

Recent events have pointed to the unfortunate truth that bad things can and will happen to good people. That's why we want to share today's heartwarming story with you.

One mother, Michelle Resendez, posted about two acts of kindness on Facebook. A homeless gentleman walked into a Burger King with only fifty cents. Michelle's son Matthew happened to be working that day.

When the homeless man asked if there was anything he could buy, something tugged at Matthew's heart even though he knew there was nothing at that price. So, he used his own debit card to pay for the man's meal. Michelle described this as a "proud mom moment."

Now, that's just half of the story. Scroll below to see how Matthew was repaid for his random act of kindness, even though he expected nothing in return. Kindness is the best medicine during times like these, don't you think?

According to The National Alliance to End Homelessness, there are over 600,000 experiencing homelessness in the U.S. today. Over 42% of these people are disabled and unable to work, 22% are children, and 14% are veterans.
