Wedding Reception for the Homeless

What could be worse than having your wedding cancelled less than two months before it was scheduled to take place? That was the case for one Atlanta, Georgia, family who decided to make the best of an otherwise terrible situation. Rather than cancelling the event, the Fowler family, with the help of a non-profit organization, decided to feed homeless families in their community. The family hopes that they can turn this charitable act into a yearly event. Share this article with young adults and have a conversation about generosity:
