Restaurant customers pay it forward, feed homeless

Thanks to generous customers, a soup shop in Melbourne, Australia, now has six months worth of pre-paid meals for patrons who are homeless. At "The Soup Place" people pay $7.50 for a full-price bowl of soup, and can choose to pay an extra $3.50 to buy one for folks less fortunate, like the diners shown here.

                                                                                                                                  ABC News
The restaurant owner launched the initiative in March, 2015. During the first year, he served more than 6,000 meals to homeless customers, and his business has increased substantially. "We're really just the platform," he admits. "The generosity comes from the public."
