How A Little Act Of Kindness Changed This Waitress Life Forever

#Life


This waitress did what thought was just trying to help in the little way she could but what never believed what came after her act of kindness. As you read I hope you get inspired. ENJOY!

Tim Young and Paul Hullings (pictured above) from New Jersey are hearty fire-fighters that live for their work. They once worked tirelessly for 12 hours to clear out a fire. After which, being completely exhausted, they went to a diner around 6 am to request the strongest cup of coffee the diner could muster. 

Their waitress that day was Liz Woodward and she just happened to overhear the two fire-fighters discussing their tiresome battle.
Eventually, when Tim and Paul went to pay, they were quite surprised. Instead of their bill, they were given this message (pictured above).



As Tim and Paul read this message, their eyes fill up with tears. They thank the kind waitress for her warm gesture. Then Tim went on Facebook to recount the event : 

“Such a selfless and kind act. I definitely urge my friends to make a trip out and support the business, and if Liz happens to be your waitress, tip big.


But the story doesn’t end there! The fire-fighter was told by someone on the Facebook post that Liz’s father, Steve, is quadriplegic and has been paralysed for 5 years and that Liz set up a donation page a few months earlier to fund a wheelchair accessible vehicle so that she can take her father places. 

Tim then urged people on Facebook and his colleagues to donate to Liz’s crowd-fund : “Turns out, the young lady who gave us a free meal is really the one that could use the help…"


Then the unbelievable happened: within a few days, she had gathered more than $70,000 - far more than the $17,000 needed for a wheelchair accessible van! Liz and her family couldn’t be more grateful to the two firemen.  

"All I did was pay for their breakfast. I didn’t expect anything more than a smile,” says the waitress “It goes to show that you just have to be kind to each other and that even the smallest gesture can change a life.”
