How many 19-year-olds would willingly give up a year’s worth of absolutely free pizza? Because that’s what the inspiring Hannah Spooner just did with her year-long supply of Little Caesars.
Rather than keeping it for herself, she donated the prize to a homeless youth home and basically cemented her spot in the good Samaritan Hall of Fame.
When Hannah unassumingly entered a raffle at her local Little Caesars store, she didn’t think twice about it until the call came that she had won. It didn’t take her very long to figure out exactly what she was going to do with all that pizza. She was going to give it away.
She told Inside Edition, “Detroit is going through a lot of negativity. I wanted somewhere close to home that would be affected by my donation.”
After making a few calls, she decided on Covenant House Michigan, a, “a faith-based nonprofit organization that provides hope to homeless, runaway and at-risk youth ages 18-24.” Covenant House offers shelter, meals, and counseling to young people in trouble, but have little funds leftover to offer a treat like pizza.
Hannah is always committed to helping her community, but admits, “I just lost a lot of weight, I wasn’t trying to eat a lot of pizza,” so her decision to donate her year of pizza was a win-win for everyone.
“I could tell it would actually make a difference,” Spooner said. “I would actually see people who benefitted from it. They were really sweet, warm, and welcoming.”
While the year of pizza might have been quite a sacrifice for Hannah, it will mean ten times that to the kids at the Covenant House. The world needs more Hannah Spooners.
