The Random Act of Kindness Revealed by This $306 Receipt

The Random Act of Kindness Revealed by This $306 Receipt

Sharona Schwartz July 29, 2013

An elderly man walking his dog in the southern Israeli desert town of Arad last week passed a gas station where he saw a bus full of soldiers from the Israel Defense Forces on their way to weekend leave with their families after three weeks of training. While crossing their path, the man appeared to make a spontaneous decision that made some 50 soldiers and their driver very happy.

Matan Mymon, who works at the Dor Alon gas station and market in Arad, posted on Facebook what happened next, a post that’s received more than 17,000 Likes and counting.

The man secretly ordered 51 sandwiches and a crate of colas for them and their driver, a purchase totaling 1,099 New Israeli Shekels, or $306. Sales clerk Mymon was so touched by the man’s generous act, he took a photo of the receipt and posted it on Facebook.

This is quite uplifting. If not being in awe of these kids and the people helping them– then take from it another example of wherever you are in your life– you could be worse off.

Every Tuesday, my daughters have two hours of softball practice. This is when I head around the corner to the library and work on my weekly class newsletter, grade papers and visit HelpOthoers.
I also do acts of kindness. I have put homemade smile cards in library books and also left money with a ‘please enjoy this random act of kindness’ note at the reference desk to pay someone’s late fines.
