Family Trades in Mansion to Help the Hungry

The Salwen family's $1.8 million mansion is for sale, and unlike many Americans with for sale signs on their lawns, the family is selling for reasons that don't involve a mortgage they can no longer afford. The Salwens lived happily in their gorgeous 1912 Georgian mansion for nine years, and after realizing how many people they could help by donating half their home's worth the family decided to downsize.

They've already moved into their new home that is half the size of their old one even though their previous home is still for sale. Once it does sell, they will donate half the proceeds and help about 20,000 hungry Ghanaians. Watch the video to see both homes and listen to the family talk about how their American Dream changed.
