A video posted on Instagram Monday captured a mother and her six boys sleeping at a bus stop on Reed Road in southeast Houston. Marisha, the mother, had run out of money and she didn’t know what to do.

“We were getting rained on, we was drenched,” said Marisha Temikakioutas. “People (were not) helping us, and they was just talking about us to even help us.”

Temikakioutas said she and her boys had been at the bus stop all weekend, ABC reported.

The video was quickly spread and people showed up at the bus stop to give her a hand. Houston rapper, Trae tha Truth was one of them.

“That touched my heart because I was trying for my kids, and I appreciate it,” Temikakioutas cried.

Temikakioutas told ABC that after leaving a Galveston shelter, she came to Houston to see if family would help. But things did not go well for her, she had nowhere else to go and had no choice.

A supporter has set up a GoFundMe page for the mother asking the community for their help.

It is said, “A small act of kindness can make a big difference.” Thank you good people who came to help Temikakioutas and her children get through this difficult time.
