It’s not all doom 😕 and gloom in the world 🌎 and we like to share good news stories 👍! This one is about a woman 👩 in Philidelphia who decided to pay it forward for a homeless man 👨 who gave her his last $20 💵.
Kate McClure decided to risk a drive 🚗 into Philadelphia one night with a flashing petrol light on 💡. She ran out of fuel and pulled over to walk to a petrol station when Johnny Bobbitt, a homeless veteran who sat on the side of the road 🛣️ every day, said that he’d help and told her to get back into the car and lock the doors 🔒.
He left and returned with a red can of petrol and filled up her car ⛽. Johnny had spent the little money he had to help a complete stranger 💸. Kate had no cash to repay him on the day but she returned with the money as well as some warm clothes because winter ❄️ was on its way. She would then give Johnny a few dollars and some food 🍕 every time she went by but she wanted to do more to repay his generosity and kindness ❤️.
That’s when Kate decided to set up a Go Fund Me page. Her aim was to raise $10,000 to cover four to six months rent 🛏️ plus a vehicle 🚗 to help Johnny get back on his feet 👣. Kate was overwhelmed with the response and the money continue to roll in and is now almost at the $400,000 mark ✅! Enough to buy Johnny a new home 🏠, his dream truck 🚚, a computer 💻 plus two trusts, one from which he can withdraw a small salary and another which will be wisely invested for his retirement. Ever selfless, Johnny is also donating some of the money to organisations that have helped him along the way 👍.
We love a happy ending 😀! Do you have a good news story 📰 from your part of the world? We’d love to hear it 👂.
