A father-daughter team has blessed the lives of dozens of people who lost their homes in California wildfires.
For the last three years, Woody Faircloth and his 9-year-old daughter, Luna, have grown fond of life on the road together. Since 2018, the pair has making special trips from Colorado to California to deliver RVs to families who’ve lost homes in wildfires.
“I turned to Luna, who was 6 at the time — she had no front teeth — and I said, ‘Luna,’ you know, ‘why don’t we get an RV and we’ll drive it to California and give it to a family so they’ll have a place to call home for Thanksgiving?'” Woody told CBS News.
With the typical BIG heart of a 9-year-old, Luna agreed with excitement.
“I said, ‘Dad, God and Santa Claus are gonna be very proud of us,'” Luna recalled.
Woody began looking for RV donors and was shocked by how many people were willing to help or chip in.
“We have volunteers all over the country that have helped us,” he said. “We have people right now that are answering emails and processing paperwork for these donations. I mean, it’s just raise your hand and say, ‘Hey, I’d like to help.'”
Since this father-daughter duo started, they’ve personally delivered over 20 RVs to families in need and also helped arrange around 100 donations in total.
Not only has this heartwarming adventure helped people in need, but it has also been an opportunity for Woody to teach his daughter life lessons. Everywhere along their trips are reminders of the cost of these fires, and they’ve developed a stronger bond.
“It’s been really special for the two of us just to be able to spend that time together and to make a difference, just so she knows that it’s not just about her and it’s not just about me, it’s about the people that we’re helping, and, you know, we’re blessed,” Woody said.
