A lady started crying when she realized she didn’t have enough money to pay for her groceries. 19-year-old cashier John Lopez Jr. from Texas then knew he has to do something to help her out.
It’s not easy to work hard just to be able to save money and then give it away to someone else. But, when there are people in need, we should be able to help them.
That is the life principle this young Walmart employee hold close to his heart.
When he started working in Walmart, John put all his paychecks into a college fund. But even when his savings were meant for his future education, John did not hesitate to help the lady in need. Without thinking twice, John knew that he had to do something.
“I just felt in my heart that the Lord told me I had to help her.”
Upon witnessing the situation, John uttered a simple sentence of “Okay, I got you, I got you” and handed the lady USD110 of his own money to pay for her groceries.
This random act of kindness was noticed by Laci Smith who’s in line at the checkout and she took photo of the big-hearted young man. Smith shared the young man’s good deed on Facebook and it quickly went viral.
John knew he had to do what he had to do.
As the story spread online, a GoFundMe page has been set up to help raise money for John’s college tuition and it has now raised over USD31,000! John just spent USD110 but never would have imagined that he will get a lot more in return!
John already has such a big heart at such a young age. It definitely pays to do good!
