When Kari Duane got a phone call from her 27-year-old daughter saying that her fiance had called off their wedding, Kari said, "Of course, this would be something that we would do to give back."

Non-refundable deposits for the wedding, which looked to cost $35,000, were already paid. So the mother-of-the-bride decided to fill the banquet hall of Sacramento's Citizen Hotel with guests. But not wedding guests - homeless guests.

They filled the room with homeless families from a local shelter, and they were served a four-star meal. However, the night was still too painful for the bride-to-be, so she opted to stay home. Her mother said, "I feel a lot of heartache and heartbreak for her, but I will take away something good from this, I will."

This reminds me of one of my favorite quotes: "When you have more than you need, don't build a bigger wall - build a bigger table."
