Storyteller Spotlight: Andie Mercado (@missmercaado)

Andie (@missmercaado) creator of @yellowhatproject, regularly passed by a homeless couple on her way to work and one cold day, decided help warm them up with the surplus of gloves, scarves and beanies in her closet.

"I always saw them there and thought to myself they need these clothes more than I do ... so I asked them one day when it was really cold if they were going to be at the same spot tomorrow and they said "yeah we can be." Andie came back the next day with a few items to keep them warm and eventually it turned it a weekly routine. She kept coming back with more winter clothes until she eventually ran out a few weeks later.

"It was something simple I could do to make someone happy." The smallest acts of kindness can go a long way.
