We always say if someone does good, he or she gets back the same, and it’s true. That’s why, some of us grab any opportunity to help people in need. I think this is the way to do and this is how we prove we’re humans. Humans need to unite, to stand by each other’s side, because you never know, maybe you’re gonna be the one in need of help someday.
Unfortunately, a lot of people doesn’t bother to reach their hand to someone who needs help, they just walk by or ignore them. That’s why, we feel incredibly happy when we come across a story of a kind human who did something to make a person’s day better, just like the story below, I bet you won’t be able to finish the story without feeling overwhelmed by good emotions.
Kate McClure was driving on the freeway heading from New Jersey to Philadelphia, when she felt something wrong with her car.
Doesnt’ know what to do, Kate decided to pull over on the side of road and think about what to do next. She left her car there and walked to find a gas station. Not too far away from her car, she noticed a man who seems homeless running toward her and telling to go back to her car and lock the doors.
Panicked, Kate did as the homeless man told her. Moments later, the man returned with a tank full of gas – and gave it to her. Turned out, he spent his last 20 dollars on the gas for Kate.
the guy named Johnny Bobbitt Junior, 34, was working as ambulance driver before losing everything a year ago. He came to Philadelphia after getting a job offer but it didn’t work out. He had no option but to spend the night on the street,but that night became weeks, months and finally, one whole year.
Despite the difficult condition he’s in, Johnny didn’t think twice of stepping in and attend to Kate who was in need of help. Using his last $20, he immediately rushes to bring her a tank full of gasoline and ended up saving her day. At that moment, Everything changed…
Kate was so grateful to Johnny she refused to leave him without returning the favor. With her boyfriend, she passed by Johnny everyday to leave him some money, or even food, supplies and protein bars.
After many weeks of doing so, Kate and her boyfriend got to know more about Johnny and how he ended up in the street. They also took a look at his Facebook pictures which were for them a serious wake up call.
“I looked through his pictures and thought ‘it could have been me,’” Kate said in an interview.
The couple knew that food and a little of money wouldn’t help Johnny to get his old good life, so they decided to do something more.
On November 10, They created a GoFundMe page, the goal was to rise $10,000 to help Johnny get on his feet again. the money was to cover rent and costs related to relocating and supplies for a few months.
In a short period of time, they managed to raise $1,700. They decided to surprise Bobby with the news, bringing a bottle of champagne along to celebrate.
“This completely changes my life,” the happy man told the couple.
Bobby’s story is continuing to spread online. At the time of writing, an incredible $160,000was raised — proving how effective it can be to bring stories such as these to public attention.
The couple says they are deeply moved over the response and will continue to help their new friend until he has regained his old life.
At a time when headlines appear to be getting darker and darker, it is so uplifting to read about positive stories like these. It shows that there is still hope — if we just look up and see each other now and then, we can make life easier for a fellow human in need.
Johnny’s story shows that poverty is something that can affect us all — and that we should all do more to help our fellow human beings. Please share this wonderful story to remind everyone to never judge anyone too soon!
