TikTok User Gives Homeless Woman An Apartment After Crowdfunding The Cash

TikTok User Gives Homeless Woman An Apartment After Crowdfunding The Cash

A TikTok user has gifted a homeless woman her very own apartment after launching a crowdfunding campaign, having spotted her on the street wearing no shoes.

After noticing the woman walking around without any footwear, Isaiah Garza (@isaiahgarzaintl) decided to do something - at first giving her some money and a new pair of trainers and some extra cash.

He continued to visit her regularly, each time presenting further essentials such as money, a smartphone, toiletries and clothing, before eventually surprising her with her own home.

The woman, named Robin, had been homeless for more than 10 years, after being forced out onto the streets following an abusive relationship.

A TikTok video shows what happened during their first encounter, with Isaiah stopping his car to ask her: "I have a question for you. So I'm out here just kinda spreading love right now. Are there any ways I could give you some cash and buy you a new pair of shoes?"

Robin, visibly surprised, replies: "Yeah!"

He later returned to offer more help, asking her: "How do you like those new shoes that I got you?"

"They're fine," Robin replies, showing off her kicks.

Isaiah then explains he wants to do more to help her, saying: "Well, I told you the next time I come back to see you, I was going to get you some new clothes, and I'm going to give you some cash, too, again."

The following clip shows Isaiah dropping off some garments, including 'some nice jeans', socks and a 'cute' top, and even a bunch of flowers.

"Oh, I won't forget you," Robin tells him.

After getting to know Robin, Isaiah set up a GoFundMe campaign to help her get off the streets.

While waiting for the funds to roll in, he carried on checking in with her to see if there was anything else she needed - putting her up in a hotel for a few nights, giving her a new smartphone and setting up an appointment to get her hair and nails done.

Eventually, with help from his TikTok followers, Isaiah successfully raised more than $58,000 (£42,000) for Robin - enough money to get Robin a two-year lease on an apartment, furniture, food and more.

On being presented with her new home, Robin tells Isaiah and his followers: "Oh my God, thank you so much."

Robin's story has gone viral on TikTok, where Isaiah shares regular updates about her life with his four million followers.

On the GoFundMe page, Isaiah also shared photos of Robin in her apartment, saying: "I took this picture of Robin enjoying her new home last week. She now has 100 channels on her new tv to relax & watch movies. She hasn't been able to do that in so many years!

"Her and I have discussed so many things for this new year. More importantly we are finding ways to bring her new income via TikTok sponsorships and her having a new business that I'm helping her with.

"We plan to also get her next 20-30 years of life financially secure & also bring her so much happiness."
