Boy gives his last dollar to a man he thought was homeless

Matt Busbice has made millions of dollars in the business world.

But the dollar he got was worth much more than a dollar.

“I haven’t had this much faith in humanity in a long time,” Busbice said of the incident in which he was mistaken for a homeless man, according to CBS.

The 42-year-old owner of BuckFeather sporting goods store in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, was pulled out of bed by a fire alarm.

There was no fire, but he was wide awake, so he decided to get a cup of coffee, wearing mismatched clothes.

Before entering the store, he stopped on the patio to say his morning prayers.

Enter 9-year-old Kelvin Ellis Jr.

Would you give your last euro to someone in need?

“And I slowly started to open my eyes, and there was a kid coming towards me, about my height,” Busbice said.

Ellis had a clenched fist. Busbice was ready for trouble. Instead, Ellis opened his fist to give Busbice a $1 bill.

“And I say, ‘What?'” Busbice said.

“If you’re homeless, here’s a dollar,” Ellis remembers saying.

“I’ve always wanted to help a homeless person, and I finally got the chance,” Ellis said.

The dollar, a reward for good grades, was all the money Ellis had. Busbice kept in touch and later let Ellis shop at BuckFeather, including a new bicycle.

Ellis said he didn’t give away his dollar for a reward, but for “joy, because I helped someone.”

“Give something away and you feel like it’s getting a lot out of you,” the 9-year-old said.

“When you give, you actually get more out of it,” Busbice said, according to CBS.

“As a child I couldn’t understand that. And if we can spread that, everything changes.”

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Busbice has a net worth of approximately $5 million.

A note from our deputy editor-in-chief:

“We don’t even know if there will be elections in 2024.” These twelve words have been stuck in my head since I first read them.

Former Lieutenant General Michael Flynn recently made this comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal.

And if the leftists and elites have their way, that is exactly what will happen: no real elections, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real voice for the American people.

The Western Journal is fighting to prevent that, but we can’t do it alone.

We work tirelessly to expose the lying left-wing media and the corrupt America-hating elites.

But Big Tech’s stranglehold is so tight now without help we cannot continue the fight from you.

The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We must unite and fight for our country or we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we will lose it forever. Can we count on you to help?

With you, we will be able to deploy journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and tell millions of Americans the much-needed truth.

We can only do this with your help. Please don’t wait a minute. Donate right now.
