When you’re a teenager, winning $10,000 is like winning the $10 million jackpot. But what did this this jobless teen do with his winnings?
He donated it all to the homeless.
Christian Hudson, who was the lucky recipient of $10,000 for beating 11 competitors at the last day of Calgary’s Stampede Talent Search, vowed to donate his winnings after spending a few nights with the city’s homeless, reports Calgary Herald.
After leaving his hometown of Airdrie, Alta., the teen took up couch surfing to participate in the competition at the Stampede. At one point, however, he couldn’t find a host.
In true rock-star fashion, the teen slept on the streets for a few nights – and that’s where he met his inspiration.
“They gave me a bit of a tour of downtown and they told me [some] of their backstories,” Hudson told CTV News. “I had a little bit of an epiphany where a lot of them are just normal guys who fell under really unfortunate circumstances [and] tragic scenarios beyond their control.”
