The story of a gas station attendant who helped a woman pay for gas when she forgot her bank cards at home is a heartwarming reminder of the power of kindness and generosity.
The man, who never expected anything in return, was rewarded with an incredible sum of money – 32,972.94 US dollars – that he could earn in just eight years of work.
It all started when 21-year-old Monet van Deventer found herself in the awkward position of having to pay for gas, but left her bank cards at home.
The good-natured gas station attendant helped the girl and paid $6.31 for her gas, and made sure the customer got home safely with a full tank.
Later, the girl returned to the gas station to return the money to the good man, but the story does not end there.
Monet was delighted with the kindness and understanding of the man, so she wanted to thank him.
She organized a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for the good-natured man, and was successful in raising the incredible sum of 32,972.94 US dollars.
The man was incredibly happy with such a reward, and said he helped the woman because it was the right thing to do in terms of humanity, an act from the heart with no intentions.
Thanks to the woman, the man was able to build a house, pay for the education of his children, as well as his bills.
This story also inspired his employers at Shell, who donated money to a charitable organization.
It serves as a reminder of the good that can come from small acts of kindness, and the ripple effect that they can have on the lives of others.
The gas station attendant’s selfless act not only helped one woman, but also touched the lives of many, and brought about positive change in his own life as well.
