Speaking with the media, he said:
“And these presents are like, Monopoly, Nerf guns, Barbie dolls, footballers, action mans, wrestlers - brand new toys.”
With a special program, he is working with schools to identify children who will really need the item. Verral said that feeling down during the lockdown sparked his interest to help people.
He narrated one of his experiences helping people:
“I came across this homeless lady in a tent. I asked her if she was hungry, she said yes. I got her some food. She was shaking so I asked if she was cold. She said yes. I got her some gloves. She burst into tears - she was literally crying about gloves that cost me 50 pence. And then it dawned on me.”
His free school uniforms for kids was motivated by a single mum who reached out to him. He, therefore, set up a picnic to raise money for the items and it was a huge success.
Another Good Samaritan
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young woman, Brittany Reed, found herself in a situation where she could not pay for her meal because she had left her wallet at home.
The woman planned to pass by McDonald's to get food for her children and had ordered when she could not find her wallet.
With an embarrassed face, she looked at the teenager, Wyatt Jones, that was attending to her and told him that she is sorry she would have to cancel.
After seeing the situation the woman was in, the teenager used his card for her instead of cancelling and gave her the order.
