Gina's People: The Ice Cream Guys

Posted: Updated:

It's all about ice cream in this week's segment of Gina's People. Michael Leb and Bob Michero of Choctal like to hand out free ice cream on the streets of Los Angeles and in shelters. "You really can't imagine the thrill that we get.  The feeling that we get from seeing people smile," says Michael Leb. Leb and Michero don't give out just any kind of ice cream. They are handing out gourmet ice cream treats. Different types of chocolate and vanilla. What's the reaction? "I think it's cool that they wanna give back and hang out with us and give us their ice cream. We can never turn that down," says a smiling man getting assistance at the Union Rescue Mission in LA.

Leb says he's a recovering attorney. Michero used to be in the wine business. Both decided they'd be happier selling ice cream. But sometimes, they do a lot more giving than selling.  Michero says, "We do believe in the karma thing. The more we give, the more we receive but we receive in different ways."

Another man at the shelter says, "It think it's a beautiful thing what they're doing and I appreciate the ice cream."
