Read the full post below:

“I have no idea who you are but today I sat and watched you for about 15 minutes help a homeless man.

I watched you give him your sneakers which looked brand new, and then you took off your socks and stood there barefoot while you took his socks off him which had a huge hole, and then you wiped his foot with a baby wipe you had in your car.

You put the socks and sneakers on him.

You helped him take off his shirt, and you put a shirt on him that you had in your car and then gave him a pair of shorts you had along with bottles of water and money.

All the while, people walked right past you staring.

You had no idea anyone was watching; you weren’t videoing it like everyone else does and then posting it online for recognition.

You did it out of the goodness of your heart.

I hope that somehow, someway this post finds you, so you know that my daughter and I think you are one amazing, good-hearted selfless person. You are what a man should be. No good deed goes unnoticed. Keep being you!”

The post has been shared over 200 000 times and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. It has also inspired everyone who has seen it!

“Small acts of kindness make the world go ’round. This is huge and amazing, but even small things are great.” – Megan Kraut 

“Amazing and heartwarming!” – Linda Rexford

After doing a bit of research, we found out that the post actually originated from the United States of America but is inspiring millions of people around the world! Thank you, kind stranger!
