When a homeless man named johnny gave their last $ 20 then it does not look like investments, but they returned to him with great dividends.
27-year-old Kate McClure went to Philadelphia to visit a friend, when suddenly she ran out of gas and her car stopped halfway between the States. The girl was very nervous, because before you’ve never been in a similar situation. She didn’t know what to do, but fortunately she met good people, which turned out to be our homeless hero named johnny. And then started to happen strange things.
“One night I was driving in Philadelphia, because I thought enough of the gas that I was,” said Kate.
“I was wrong. Before I never had problems with gasoline, and I thought that my heart jump out of my chest,” she continued.
Fortunately, she came to the aid of a homeless man named johnny.
“As soon as he saw me pulling onto the shoulder, then immediately realized that something is wrong. He told me to get back in the car and lock the door. After a few minutes he returned with a red can of gasoline, spending her last $ 20 so I could safely get home, ” he told Kate about his Savior.
Johnny asked the girl to get back in the car and lock the door not because I was afraid now to drink away the money and begin to brawl, but because outside was dangerous.
At that time Kate could not repay the homeless, in addition to simple thanks. But she was able to do it then ..
“Over the past few weeks, I stayed in the same place. I gave him money for gasoline, and also jacket, gloves, hat and warm socks and I give him a few dollars every time I see him.”
One day, when she bought him some cereal bar, johnny turned to her and said, “you Want?”.
After this incident, Kate’s heart finally broke, and she decided to give a homeless guy johnny more help than lint and a few dollars.
She created a charity campaign on the GoFundMe website dedicated to johnny, and soon the donations exceeded the initial goal of $ 10,000.
Users with incredible tenacity continued to transfer money in a short time the amount of donations reached $ 100 000.
After you reach the amount of 100 thousand dollars, johnny asked Kate to pause the campaign because I didn’t want people to think that he just decided to take advantage of the situation.
As if there was not later, Kate again launched a campaign, because the interest of users to the fate of johnny and thought to decrease. Thus, they were able to collect a lot more than you can imagine.
During his service in the marine corps, johnny was an expert in munitions, he then managed to work as a firefighter and a paramedic before he fell on hard times.
“I’m collecting money for johnny. Funds raised will go to pay the rent, a reliable car and future costs for 4-6 months,” explained Kate to raise funds for the campaign site.
“He’s very interested in finding a job, and I think the place where he will have the opportunity to wash and relax every night will be able to return it to normal life,” writes Kate.
Priceless reaction of johnny when he first learned about the arranged in his honour a campaign and how much money you managed to collect.
“God, this is amazing! You did it! This is incredible! Cohort. Holy shit .. ” – the first words johnny.
Then the guys began to tell him how many people and how much they donated money, and johnny sat and could not believe his luck.
According to the New York Post, johnny wants to get to the Amazon warehouse in Robbinsville, new Jersey, and a member of the recruiting staff responded, saying that he was ready to help the man to take a seat in the company.
Meanwhile, at the time of writing, the amount of donations has come close to $ 350 000.
Kindness and self-sacrifice are the most valuable qualities that today are becoming increasingly rare, so johnny deserved every cent donated.
