Social media is either a blessing or a curse. For 65-year old Isaac Avila, it’s nothing short of a miracle.
Thanks to the power of YouTube and Facebook, Isaac, who goes by Chico, was able to reunite with his family after almost 40 years of being homeless.
According to WSVN, Avila used to be a printer at the Miami Herald back in the day and from time to time, he visits his old stomping grounds to see former employees. One day, he met a volunteer named Gaby who works for an organization named Miracle Messages, which records and shares short video clips of homeless people trying to locate family and friends. An amazing cause, to say the least.
On January 25th, the video was posted to YouTube and just a short while later, Miracle Messages succeeded! See their touching Facebook post below and be sure to watch Chico’s message.
