Life on the streets has never been easy. Not knowing where your next meal will come from is a struggle known all to well by those unfortunate enough to find themselves having to go to bed without a roof over their heads.
While not everyone who would like to gift the less fortunate is able to, its always nice to see that those who can, are doing their part. Which is probably why, when this kind stranger brought a young homeless girl into a store to buy some clothes, Lethabo decided to capture the moment.
The young girl walked away not only with a brand new outfit but also with money to buy toiletries and perhaps a little change for food. This heartwarming act of kindness touched the hearts fo thousands of people who thanked the unknown generous giver for being a shining example of what it means to be a good person.
Here are some of the comments.

While this user shared why it was important to see other people performing great acts of kindness.
"The way I see it, posting pictures of people that you have or are assisting is not a bad thing for these reasons. Firstly, it motivates the next person to do the same thing and to realise that you don't have to be wealthy to help someone.Secondly, if the person is homeless or doesn't know/have family, pictures can help locate long lost relatives.Thirdly, it could be that consent to take or post pictures on social media was given by the individual that is being assisted.We don't know what was discussed behind certain pictures and we need to stop thinking one sided because sometimes tunnel vision is not good."
