An actor is enjoying praise on social media after it emerged that he bought all of the groundnut a young man was hawking on the streets.
YEN.com.gh has sighted a Facebook post in which a man, told the story of how he had pity to buy out a hawker's groundnuts and also give him his sneakers as part of his kind gesture.
The Facebook post by Etiketa details the story from the perspective of the benefactor.
The post went: "He was sitting on the road side with this groundnut looking tired and hungry I stopped and realised he hasn’t sold anything today so I asked him how much all his groundnut cost and he said N1200($5), he has been under the sun since morning for $5.
I didn’t know a better way to make his day better so I gave him my snickers [sic] (which happened to be his size) with 10,000 and asked him to go home and call it a day."
"He also told me that he is in school and this is how he helps pay his fees and help the family as well, but I don’t think I want him to selling again..
I am not a rich man but I realized that it actually doesn’t cost a lot to help people, the truth of the matter is that anyone can help someone in need without having a lot of money. I have a lot of shoes but I can only wear one at a time while the rest seats at home so why would I want to keep them all to myself when I can share with people that don’t have much.why could you keep 100k in your account and you have a lot of helpless and hungry people around you and you pass them by without feeling a sense of guilt and compassion.YOU CANT HELP THE WHOLE WORLD BUT YOU CAN HELP SOMEONE..this is the life I’ve decided to live and it sure will be nice if you try it by helping people around you that are in need."
Of course, as a result of this kindness, most respondents either thanked the Samaritan or spoke of how others need to emulate the course of action.
It is fair to say that more of this sort of kindness would definitely make the world a better place.
