All is not lost and people around the world prove that time and again. A man from California gave his pants to a homeless man on a freezing night. He did it so that the homeless man did not have to freeze in the night. His gesture was recorded by his wife and appreciated by many around the world.
Daniel Richards was filmed by his wife when he offered his clothes to a homeless man on a freezing night. Daniel Richards and his wife were coming from a late-night snack run in Fresno. On their late-night snack run, they met a homeless man David. They offered him food after which they realized that he had no pants on a freezing night.
They were concerned about him as the temperature was very low. The couple was concerned and decided to help him. They had an issue about timing and decided to give David the clothes Daniel was wearing as it was late at night and David might leave to sleep someplace and there were no shops open to buy clothes. Thus, Daniel offered David his sweatpants, the very one he was wearing so that he could keep himself warm at the night.
Daniel’s wife recorded the whole thing, not for fame or anything but to urge others to help and the clip has gone viral on TikTok with more than 1.6 million views. She explained: “We noticed he didn’t have any pants on, just very short running shorts and he seemed to be very cold. After getting into our vehicle my husband began to tell me there’s no way, he could drive off knowing that man would possibly go to sleep that night on the sidewalk or behind a building without any pants or blanket of the sort.”
She further explained: “We had a short conversation while realizing it was too late to go to the store and before I knew it my husband was getting out of the car approaching David. That’s when I decided to pull out my phone and record. There was never any intention to record this for popularity or fame or to exploit this homeless man. My intentions were purely based on the fact that although I know my husband and we have been together over 10 years he has never wavered in doing the right thing or making the right decision.”
Even Daniel explained why he removed his pants in front of David instead of removing them beforehand. He shared that he did not want David to freak out in the middle of the night seeing some stranger coming up to him without pants offering him pants. Thus, he first asked him whether he was comfortable wearing the sweatpants and then removed his sweatpants in front of him and gave it to David. He shared that David was thankful for the sweatpants. He felt good about doing the right thing.
