In March, 2016, a homeless man went into Abi’s Café in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and asked the owner for money. Instead of asking him to leave, the owner, a woman in her 20’s named Cesia Abigail replied to the man saying, ‘Why don’t you have a job? You know nothing is given to me for free, right?’

The homeless man, named Marcus, explained to Cesia that he would love to have a job but, due to his history of felonies, it was very hard for him to find employment. Marcus has been stealing and panhandling just to survive.

The story went viral because of what Cesia decided to do. She had been struggling with her restaurant that celebrated her El Salvadorean heritage. She felt a connection with the man, and even though she couldn’t afford to give him any money, she offered him something else.
