That’s when Carol, the angel in line behind Katie, spoke up. She understood the struggle new parents had and wanted to help ease Katie’s burden a little bit. She announced that she would cover the difference in price that Katie had not anticipated.
If Carol, in the zebra shirt, had not opened her wallet for this young woman, Katie would have been stuck between a rock and a hard place. Instead, her angel paid for the diapers, and the mother was able to go home with the items she needed.
Carol is happy that other people are inspired by her random act of generosity. But she doesn’t understand what it means that she’s gone viral as she has. Nevertheless, she hopes other people will also share and help others who are in need. Because she saw an opportunity arise, she seized it and willingly shared her hard-earned money with someone she knew needed it – and for something useful.
Have you ever done something generous for a stranger?
