Pearl Zambrano bumped into an old landlord at a time when she needed help the most. The single mother of two had just lost her job and was about to be made homeless. When she told Rafael Trevino this, without thinking he solved her problem. He told her she could live back in her old house, rent free. But on one condition…
The current tenants had moved out and 26 year-old Trevino always lived Pearl and her family. His offer? Live without paying rent and go back to school. Which she duly did. She later nominated Rafa for an award. A ‘Pay It 4Ward’ award. Which he won!
“There are no words,” says Pearl. “I don’t like crying. I got laid off… So I had no way of paying the bills. It was very touching what he did. I’ve offered to pay him back and he says ‘no’… ‘not to stress.'”
Here’s more on this simply fantastic story.
