Golden Globe-winning actress Rachel Bloom, the star of the CW show 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend', put out a call for help on Twitter the day after Christmas.
Bloom said she and her husband were stranded because of road closures.
She said highways going south were closed and every hotel that was open was at least a two-hour drive away and they were about to sleep in their car in a Denny's parking lot.
We are stranded here or theoretically north of here (every highway going south is closed) and every hotel that’s open is at least a 2 hour drive away and we’re about to just sleep in our car— Rachel Bloom (@Racheldoesstuff) December 27, 2019
That's when a couple living in Bakersfield offered to put them up.
"I tweeted and just said, 'Hey we have a room, like there's cats and dogs and pie and bagels and come on down,'" said Kate Brogden.
Added Steven Porfiri: "We figured our house is a little better than a Denny's parking lot."
Bloom, who is seven months pregnant, took up the generous offer.
Bloom recorded a thank-you video to the couple.
In it, she said, "It was a true Christmas miracle. the kindness of strangers is not dead."
