Couple wins free pizza for a year and donates it all to a homeless shelter

Hannah Spooner pretty much hit the jackpot when she won free pizza for a year.

The 19-year-old won the coveted prize of $500 (£380) worth of pizza vouchers from Little Caesar’s along with her boyfriend Pete Kadry.

But instead of basking in their incredible prize, they decided to do something really admirable. The couple from Detroit donated all 52 vouchers to charity.

Hannah told Fox News:

I just know there are other people out there who have nothing. And I don’t think I should be eating a year’s worth of free pizza when there are people who go hungry at night.

They donated it to Covenant House Michigan, a homeless shelter for young people.

Speaking to Inside Edition about the positive effect their donation had, Hannah said:

[People at the shelter] were really, really happy. I could tell that it would actually make a difference.

While their residents are given three meals a day, a representative from the charity expressed their gratitude at such a generous gesture.

They said:

This was wonderful to find out that someone cared enough about these young people here at Covenant House to provide this pizza for them.
