Back in 2014, nine-year-old Ariel would watch her mom Natalie sweat, and worry about whether or not they would be able to afford rent. She would watch her worried mother pack and unpack their belongings as they spent each month questioning whether they would be thrown out onto the streets with no where to go.
However, on her own, Ariel decided to try and help her mother by sneaking a letter to Fox5's Surprise Squad behind her mother's back.
Natalie had no idea what to expect when the news crew arrived and told her about her daughter's letter. See how a group of strangers came together in the Fox 5 report below.
