Incredible Tip Helps Waitress Pay for College

Not wanting to run up more debt, 21-year-old Cayla Chandara was working double shifts as a waitress, trying to pay off college loans before returning to school to finish her education. Two customers struck up a conversation, and Chandara told them about school and her dreams for the future. They surprised her with a $400 tip. Chandra wanted to thank them more properly, so she wrote up a heartfelt note and dropped it off at the front desk of the hotel they had mentioned they were staying at. The couple returned to the restaurant the next night and told Chandra that they wanted to give her $10,000 to pay off her student loans and to contribute to her continuing her college education. She was at a complete loss of words but managed to stammer out that she couldn’t possibly accept such a large sum of money from complete strangers. The couple insisted, saying it would mean as much to them as it would mean to her. “They told me the best way to thank them is to be my best possible self, dream big and strive for my goals,” Chandara said. An incredible gift and wonderful advice from two anonymous strangers.

Coat Racks for the Homeless

Emilia Flores, a restaurant owner in Dallas, Texas, set up a “Take one, leave one” coat rack for the homeless. The rack, located outside her place of business, makes available free coats, hats, and scarves during frigid weather. “This is a way of people not being embarrassed about asking,” Flores explained. “They just come and pick what they need and leave.” Flores’ thoughtful idea has now inspired other business owners to set up similar outside coat racks!

Stranger pays dinner bill for family with epileptic child

(China Grove, NC) - Ashley England was was having a rough dinner at Stag-N-Doe pizza with her 8 year old son.  Her son, Riley has epilepsy and is nonverbal.  He gets frustrated when he cannot speak and decided to throw a tantrum.

One stranger turned the England family's day completely around.  This stranger paid for their meal and attached a heartwarming note which read, "God only gives special children to special people."


Ashley was incredibly grateful. "To have someone do that small act towards us shows that some people absolutely understand what we are going through and how hard it is to face the public sometimes," she said. "They made me cry, blessed me more than they know. I felt like out of all the rude negative comments that we are faced with, these outweighs them. The people who care. Little did he know what struggles we had been facing lately, and this was surely needed at that moment."

Ashely posted her gratitude on Facebook: "Dear stranger, thank you for giving me a blessing tonight in a way you will never know."

 

And that's what's good,

Jon
