Kindness and generosity in the world could be the only thing keeping many afloat especially during this difficult time where many are struggling.
There have been many recorded moments of kindness and one could probably be headed for the top as many would even consider it as a gift of the year.
A lady TikToker, @lexylately, delighted many on social media with her incredible display of affection as she tipped an Uber driver $1,000 (N381,250).
In a video posted on TikTok that went viral on Twitter, Lexy and her husband were seated at the back of the cab as the Somali driver, identified only as Awil, told them a bit about his business and family.
Awil said he used to make $1,000 (N381,250) but that has been cut to half no matter the hard hours put on the road.
The driver said he had to send money back to Somali, and for them whatever he made was sufficient because the money has more value as compared to the US.
He was heard saying:
“The money you send from here to them (Somalia) it’s big money for them. One dollar is enough that you can eat the whole day.”
The video then cut to the second part where Lexy and her husband surprised Awil with a bundle of $1,000 (N381,250). He was reluctant to accept it but he eventually took the money.
The driver, who couldn’t control his tears of joy, kept asking the couple if they were sure of their humble offer.
Awil finally accepted the offer and Lexy informed him that it was a combined effort where fans were involved because they also sent their donations online. Lexy noted it was called the Venmo challenge where they help people through GoFundMe accounts.
The cab driver noted that there are lots of good people in the world that no matter the situation, they still offer a helping hand.
In similar news, South African hero BI Phakathi is still changing lives. In a recent video shared on Facebook, Phakathi purchased all the stock being sold by a local street vendor and then gave it back to her.
Mam Dlamini was walking around with her goods when Phakathi approached her. She had peanuts, bananas and pears packed neatly into a plastic bowl which was placed on top of her head.
Phakathi started by purchasing the peanuts but then asked Mam Dlamini how much all of her stock was going for.
