DETROIT — A formerly homeless boy was moved to tears when he was surprised with his very own bed to sleep in.
After losing her job, this single mother and her 8 year old son became homeless.Posted by Humble Design on Wednesday, December 20, 2017
Eight-year-old Daeyrs of Detroit has been living in shelters with his mom, Dionna, for most of his life. They have been homeless since she lost her job as a nurse.
According to “Inside Edition,” the family was finally granted state housing but couldn’t afford to furnish the home. Daeyrs had been sleeping on only blankets until the family got the help they needed.
Nonprofit organization Humble Design stepped in to make the house a home for the family.
“When we visited them earlier this week they just had an air mattress on the ground and a few camp chairs,” the organization wrote on Facebook.
Video shared to the group’s Facebook page shows Daeyrs touring the house with his mom for the first time. When it came time to tour his room, the designers told Daeyrs to close his eyes.
When he opened them, he saw a completely furnished room, complete with "Star Wars" posters, a desk, and most importantly, his very own bed.
He immediately broke down in tears.

“Morgan is way more than just an actor, narrator, producer, humanitarian. This man is a national treasure,” Moreno said.
When he came to the stage, the 80-year-old icon traded a few playful jokes with Moreno, before moving on to the thank you’s.
“These moments in one’s life usually will call for an entire litany of thank you’s. I can’t do that because I don’t know all of your names, so I won’t try,” said Freeman. “This is beyond honor. This is a place in history.”
But towards the end of his speech, Freeman commented on the SAG award statue:
