In a post on Facebook, Briana wrote "Witnessed this man giving a homeless man the shirt off of his back, literally. Y'all, it is freezing cold in Alabama. This poor man was standing at a red light desperately trying to stay warm. If you listen closely, you'll hear the guy proceeding to tell him that he was going to get him something to eat and that he'd be right back. I was in tears. This is the kind of people we need more of in this world. This is absolutely beautiful..."

Briana finished off her post by using the hashtag #FaithInHumanity.
