I normally take little notice of viral videos, but this one is inspiring.
Ted Williams is homeless, and he stands on the side of Interstate 71 in Columbus, Ohio to beg for money, with a sign that reads:
I have a God given gift of voice, I'm an ex-radio announcer who has fallen on hard times. Please! Any help will be gratefully appreciated. Thank you and God bless you. Happy Holidays.
Being in the right place at the right time, a video of him was posted on YouTube by a reporter for the Columbus Dispatch:
The link on reddit has gone mad, with 576 comments from readers offering everything from job offers, money to pay his salary and used suits.
It seems the internet can be used for good, and to give Ted a second chance.
