Are people willing to lend a helping hand to homeless people when they are rich and in power? A netizen named Akramadinas recently shared a touching video on TikTok. Akramadinas works in The California convenience store Tower Gas, often shared his daily work of a retail business, and also helps homeless people and the needy. He shares touching contents that garner more than 3.1 million followers, and his videos are often shared on the internet.
Recently, he shared a video that moved netizens to tears, wherein a homeless man in front of the store counter was holding a thick cardboard and asking for work. He mentioned that since his sight was not very good, he wanted to earn money to buy himself a pair of glasses, and would wipe windows for as low as $1.00. He was asking the shop owner if he wanted to have his windows cleaned, so the homeless man can earn some pocket money, too.
The kind-hearted Akramadinas gave the homeless man a job opportunity, and the man thanked him and went on with his job for the day. Moments later, the store clerk asked him how much he had made for that day. The homeless man took out his wallet and proudly said, “I have earned $11 today!”
The clerk then asked, “How much do you want to buy the glasses?” The homeless man said about $150.00, the shop assistant said, “So you have to clean 150 windows,” and the homeless man smiled and said, “Yes, I will continue to work hard to make money until I can buy glasses.”
The homeless man did not expect the clerk to reach out and give him a $500 bill on the counter, and said to him, “This I give you. Find a place to sleep, buy something to fill your stomach, you can go to buy glasses!”
At first, the homeless man stared at the bill on the counter, then he suddenly cried with surprise and shouted, “I can buy glasses tomorrow!”
The homeless man sobbed with joy and hugged the store clerk. Netizens who watched the video were moved to tears saying, “You gave him not only glasses, but you also gave him hope.”
“This is what the rich should do. If I have money, I’d help people.”
“People who live on the streets, although homeless, are also people. Please do not Look at them with a judging eye.”
“He said he made 11 bucks, how proud his eyes were, how much money he made on his own, nothing to be ashamed of.”
“A lot of people make billions, but he was proud to have made $11.00 that day. This video moved me to tears after watching it.”
Let’s finally watch the heart-warming video. In this cold weather, the warmth of the heart is the most touching. If you can help people in need, do not hesitate as much as possible!
