The story of the gas station worker who helped a woman pay for gas when she forgot her bank cards at home is a heartwarming reminder of how powerful kindness and generosity can be.
The man didn’t expect anything in return, but he was given an amazing amount of money—$32,972.94—that he could earn in eight years of work.
Monet van Deventer, who was 21 at the time, had to pay for gas but had left her bank cards at home. This put her in a bad spot.
The friendly gas station worker helped the girl, paid for her gas ($6.31), and made sure she got home safely with a full tank.
Later, the girl went back to the gas station to give the good man his money back, but that’s not the end of the story.
Monet was happy with how kind and smart the man was, so she wanted to thank him.
She set up a crowdsourcing campaign to raise money for the nice man, and she was able to get an amazing 32,972.94 US dollars.
The man was very happy to get such a reward, and he said that he helped the woman because it was the right thing to do as a human being. He did it out of the goodness of his heart, without any plans.
The woman helped the man build a house, pay for his children’s schooling, and pay his own bills.
His bosses at Shell were also moved by this story, and they gave money to a good cause.
It’s a reminder of the good that can come from small acts of kindness and how they can affect the lives of many people.
The gas station worker’s kind act not only helped one woman, but also changed the lives of many people and made him feel better about himself.
