At the point when faced with someone requiring help, we have two choices. To mumble something and leave, or to actually help. It truly seems to come down to that.
There is obviously an inclination to help individuals we know well, for example, family and dear companions. Be that as it may, when we encounter outsiders, and people in need specifically, we are often less inclined to help.
Maybe we’re frightened, maybe we think another person will help them rather, maybe we don’t think they truly need the help or will misuse any philanthropy we give them towards liquor or unwanted medications. In any case, whatever the explanation, people in need are among the most powerless among us — and absolutely can use a helping hand.
Apparently a Burger King employee, a young guy named Matthew Resendez, understood this well indeed.
Matthew was working one evening when a homeless guy suddenly walked in. It wasn’t unordinary for Matthew to serve homeless people at the restaurant, yet this one man had an unusual inquiry for him.
The scruffy man moved toward the counter and asked just: “What would I be able to get for 50 cents?”
At the point when Matthew heard his inquiry, he had two choices. To react with the basic reality: “Nothing” — 50 pennies would not have gotten the man even the littlest canapé on the menu. In any case, that is not the reaction Matthew chose to give.
An Act of Generosity
Matthew rung up the most healthy meal on the menu — and covered it out of his own pocket.
The story could have finished there. Be that as it may, another customer happened to see Matthew’s act of generosity and responded by showing his kindness… and tipping Matthew $100!
After hearing what happened that day, Mathew’s mother, Michelle Resendez, felt very proud of her child. She later took to Facebook to recount to the story.
“Proud mom moment! Matthew worked this evening and a homeless gentlemen walked in the restaurant with .50 cents and asked if there was anything on the menu he could buy. Matthew asked him what he would order if he could and the man said anything would help his hunger pains. So Matthew rung him up for a hearty meal and then used his own debit card to pay for the mans meal. He handed him the receipt and told him to relax and take a seat. The story could end there and It would be a happy ending, but apparently a women watched my son during his random act of kindness. Not only did she write the company to let them know about the caring employee they had working for them, she also rewarded my son with a very generous tip! So proud to be his mom and I can pat myself on the back knowing that I’ve played a part in raising this big hearted young man.”
It’s possible that if it was a different staff member they would tell the homeless gentlemen to leave the restaurant without a single thing to eat, however Matthew is certainly not one of those people. He is a very exceptional young man who wants to alter the way homeless and poor folks are cared for and he was rewarded due to that.”

Now that’s what I call karma in ‘immediate’ action! I truly believe that when we make the kinder choice, we are all rewarded at the end. Let’s all share this story to remind everyone of this and praise Matthew for his lovely gesture!
