Princess Diana once stated, “Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” That’s the lesson of the accompanying story. It just took one irregular act of graciousness, conducted by the most individuals, to change a man’s life for eternity. You will get to know how a terrifying circumstance can immediately transform into a night that won’t soon be forgotten. Truth be told, it might even motivate you!
Katie McClure was headed to a friend’s home when something that most ladies fear, quickly turned into a reality.
It was 12:00 during the night, and for the first time in Katie’s life, she came up short on gas while driving on one of Philadelphia’s freeways. Fortunately for Katie, she came with the shortage of gas at the right place.
That has never happened with the Katie before
“My heart was beating out of my chest. I pulled over as far as I could, and got out of the car to head to the nearest gas station,” said Katie. She went to the gas station and she saw someone she had recognized.
Johnny Bobbitt Jr. was at his daily spot before the gas station when Katie drew closer.
Johnny is a homeless veteran that Katie had seen every once in a while. Katie never believed that ‘the person who hung out at the service station’ would one day turn into her legend.
Johnny had seen Katie pull over and he knew something wasn’t right.
When he had discovered that she had come up with a shortage of gas he advised Katie to get back in her car and close the doors. Katie did as he said and returned to her car. Click on the next page to know what happened next.
After a couple of minutes, Katie saw Johnny was walking toward her vehicle, however this time he had something in his hand!
Katie understood that it was a gas can that he was carrying. Johnny had offered an ultimate demonstration of kindness.
Not only did Johnny ensure that Katie returned home securely, he performed something that you wouldn’t believe.
For somebody who depends on what little money he needs to get by, Johnny spent his savings of $20 on gas for Katie! Katie couldn’t believe what Johnny had changed the situation for her, and she wanted to repay him.
Katie and her partner have returned to the street where Johnny was present for few times.
They’ve not just come back with feelings of appreciation, they paid Johnny back for the gas, and have given him food, warm garments, and even a gift voucher! But Katie simply wanted to do something more.
Not only was Johnny a hero to Katie, he was a legend to the United States, also.
Johnny worked as an ammunition technician in the U.S. Marine Corps, who had dreams of being a flight nurse. Sadly, at times our dreams simply don’t play out the correct way. Click on the next page to know more.
Johnny has been homeless in Philadelphia for about a one and half year in the wake of battling with drug obsession and cash issues.
In spite of his past, Katie wanted to help him out. “Johnny has reflected on his life,” said Katie’s partner Mar D’Amico. “He simply needs a push in the right direction.” It was then that a Gofundme was initiated in Johnny’s name!
In under two weeks, over $350,000 was raised for Johnny!
Katie and Mark managed the funds to help johnny to get a flat, telephone, car, and food! This thing shows how one’s small act of kindness can go far.
Johnny’s reaction was unforgettable when Katie told him about the Gofundme!
Johhny will have help with a financial planner and a legal advisor. He doesn’t plan to keep all the cash for himself, he wants to show small kindness towards the people. Johnny revealed to reporters, “I just want to do the right thing. This money was given to help me. Why not help other people in similar situations or people that are actively helping other people in different situations?”
