Stranger Donates Home to Family in Need

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a man donates a home to a family in need. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

A fire gutted the Pittsburgh house Lori Rippey and Vaughan Lutton shared with their four kids.

They had no insurance and no savings.

That's when a stranger named George came to the rescue.

George heard the story on the radio and decided to give the couple a property that he owns.

He says: “I had this feeling when I had a baby, had this feeling when I got my job. Feels like I hit the lottery, that’s what it feels like.”

Now, with the whirlwind of losing a home and getting a new one, the couple can't express their gratitude enough.

Lutton says, “Nothing feels more comfortable than knowing you have a home. Thanks to God and people like George for coming through for us when you need them.”

Lori adds, “I’m just amazed at the love from complete strangers.”
