Lottery Player Uses Winnings to Put a Homeless Guy in a Motel
Sofia Lorena, a single mom in Wareham, Massachusetts won $200 on a scratch-off lottery ticket this past Saturday. On her drive home, she saw a homeless guy begging for change.
The temperature was below zero that night, so she picked him up and bought him coffee. He was so grateful he started crying. Then she called around to a bunch of homeless shelters in the area, but they were all full. So she took the $200 she'd just won, and put him up in a motel for three nights.

Sofia started a page on GoFundMe.com and has already raised nearly fifteen grand.
