This Angel Used Her Credit Card To Help Save Chicago’s Southside Homeless From Freezing!

A couple of days ago, someone purchased hotel rooms for Chicago’s South Side homeless community, but nobody knew who it was.

Tonight, we know.

Candace Payne became an “angel” when she purchased 20 hotel rooms on her credit card to help house those who were homeless. Chicago faced one of the worst freezing temperatures in decades and Candace made the impulsive decision to help. More communities decided to help after learning of Payne’s sacrifice.

CBS Chicago reports it all started with Candice Payne’s first act of kindness, and then it snowballed into “a lifesaving effort by a group of strangers on the city’s South Side.”

On Wednesday many people living in a “tent city” had to abandon the area after a propane tank being used for heat exploded.

Volunteer Candice Payne started it all, “impulsively charging 20 hotel rooms on her American Express card after realizing how dangerous this week’s sub-zero temperatures would be.”

That’s when other volunteers also dug deep into their pockets and picked up the tab for a total of 60 hotel rooms for homeless men and women during the cold snap.

Jermaine and Robert told CBS Chicago that Candice is “their angel.”

This story needs to be shared everywhere, and Candace needs to be rewarded somehow. It was a great plan, and she helped a lot of people with lodging and food.
