Radio Personality Gives 'Granny' $80,000 Home Renovation

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a Colorado radio personality rewards a grandmother with an $80,000 home renovation. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Denver radio DJ Willie B recently put up a question on his Facebook page: "What would you do if money were no object."

He got the usual responses: get a new car, go on a vacation... but one very special response stuck out.

One audience member, Stacy, responded that she would buy her Grandma new carpeting because the 90-year-old took care of her and her younger siblings after her single mother was murdered.

Willie jumped into action, got a bunch of friends in the construction industry together and, by the time they were through, Vivian Gallegos, better known as "Granny," got a new kitchen, new appliances, a new furnace, and much more.

They put in $80,000 in renovations in all.

Granny was shocked speechless.
