This wasn't the change he was asking for. But it was exactly the change he needed.
A homeless man in England politely asked a random passerby for money, but the person refused to give it to him. He had something much more valuable in mind.
The person was a painter, and after consulting with his colleagues and making sure the man was sober, he returned later that day to offer him a job.
"They had a bit of a long chat between them then he put his bag down and picked up a paintbrush and got to it," said Darren Wheatcroft, a witness who happened to capture pictures of the heartwarming moment. "He was being given tips and shown what to do, it was really great to see."
