Stefun Darts, a college student from Houston knows what it means to put family first. At 24 years old he has already founded the non-profit, Caring Heart Youth, and through personal sacrifice was able to provide his grandparents $15,000 and a trip to the Bahamas.
Yahoo shares more of the story:
“I promised God in the second grade I would pay off you guys house and help you retire. A promise I would never break,” Darts, 24, wrote on Facebook. “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched, but are felt by the heart.
“Even with this, I could never repay you for what you’ve done for me,” the San Jacinto College student said. “I sacrificed my teenage and early adulthood of not having fun for this moment. I couldn’t stand you going to work at night, some nights I didn’t even sleep knowing it shouldn’t be like this. Never have I wrote a check wanting this to be the first one. To all my friends that stood by me over these last 6 years I appreciate you.”According to local CBS affiliate KHOU, Darts saved the money by eating microwave pizza and opting to not go out with friends in order to save the money for Marilyn and Cecil Roberts who have been making mortgage payments for over 20 years…
“I couldn’t believe it,” Marilyn said, Darts’ grandmother told KHOU. “To have a grandson like that is a blessing.”
Well, there’s certainly no doubt about who grandson of the year is.
Few things in life are as sweet as what Stefun did for his family. His sacrifice is such an inspiration!
