$1000 Given To Stranger In Random Act Of Kindness
The news from around the world has been pretty awful recently. If you watch TV or search the Internet, it’s enough to make you want to just give up on everything and everyone. That’s why it’s always refreshing when we learn that somebody is doing something nice and selfless for another human being. A post made earlier this week on Imgur by user gingersnap1316 told of one such story. A man she didn’t know gave her mother who is battling cancer $1000 along with the following letter:
Gingersnap1316 explains: “This morning I was woken up by someone trying to get me to buzz them into the building… I ignored the first two buzzers hoping they would go away but the third got me up. I buzzed them in (we dont have a working intercom so I couldnt ask who they were)… then I stood there waiting looking out the peep hole of the door. An older gentleman gets to my door and knocks… I opened asking if I could help him and all he said was “Are you Karen?” I told him no, that Karen was my mom and he gave a quick smile and handed me an unmarked envelope and walked away. I get inside and open it up. The second I saw the money I sat on the floor. $1,000 from a stranger. I have no clue who the man was and he was gone by the time I got outside. I called my mom and told her to sit down and read her the letter… she started bawling instantly.”
She went on to say, “My mom has been battling ovarian cancer for three years now. It has been a very long difficult journey mentally, physically, and financially. However, this helps more than the giver knows. They have taken some of that stress away and also given my mom hope and a reason to smile. So, thank you. Thank you with everything in me and also for carrying on such an amazing tradition.”
Cheers to the generous man who performed a random act of kindness. Here’s hoping more people follow his lead.
