When Hurricane Harvey barreled through Texas, the monster Category 4 storm destroyed a Corpus Christi family’s home.

But an act of kindness from another family two states away changed everything for the better.

This holiday season, overwhelming gratitude was expressed by one Texan family for the gift of a lifetime.

When Hurricane Harvey hit the Weeks family’s small town last summer, they braced for the worst.

Hurricane survivor William Weeks described the hurricane, saying, “It sounded like a train running through. It was intense.”

Their home was destroyed by the storm.

But then, the Weeks experienced an inspired act of kindness, granted them by a family watching their plight from two states away.

Steve Nelson manages a family-owned construction business based in Colorado.

Nelson Builders supplies tiny houses for people wanting to live ‘off the grid.’

Nelson says, “When we heard the story on ABC, we just kinda… I blurted it out! I just said, ‘Why don’t we just give them it? Give them the tiny house!'”

The business had constructed a demo tiny home in their driveway, and decided to donate it to the family in need.

Nelson took it upon himself to have the home delivered to Texas.

After three days and traveling more than a thousand miles, the tiny house was delivered to the Weeks family.

Danielle Weeks expressed her thanks, saying, “It means more to us then we can say in words.”
