Struggling cashier offers to buy hungry man food not expecting huge reward for her kindness

Kim was just trying to help out a stranger, but it ended up changing her life in the most incredible way.

Surrounded by dire stories in our news cycles every day, it’s easy to think that this world doesn’t have room for kindness any longer.

This exacerbates the prejudice most people hold against people who live on the fringes of society.

People below the poverty line are sometimes assumed to be delinquents who wouldn’t think twice about taking advantage of other people.

That couldn’t be farther than reality.

A man approaches the counter of a local A&W.

The woman behind the counter, Kim, greeted him and asked for his order.

By the looks of it, she was more than willing to assist the man. However, this wasn’t your typical interaction.

The man then asked how much their cheapest burger costs.

The woman probed further, asking whether he likes just a regular hamburger or a cheeseburger.

This is when the man becomes honest about his situation.

He said that he only had a dollar on him.

Quite painfully, the woman explained that they don’t have anything on the menu that costs a dollar or less.

The man was ready to leave. However, the woman tried her best to find a solution.

She checked the prices of their sliders, but that wouldn’t work either.

Kim then gave the man an offer.

She asked whether the man liked hotdogs.

When the man answered, the woman behind the counter punched in the order and told the man that it was on her.

Surprised and grateful, the man happily accepted and asked her why she bought him some food. Kim revealed that she knew the feeling of being hungry and she will do what she can to help someone who’s experiencing the same.

It is at this moment that the man reveals who he really is.

Moved by Kim’s unconditional act of kindness, even after experiencing hunger herself, the man gave her something in return.

Zachery Dereniowski, more commonly known as MDMotivator on YouTube, tucked the dollar into the tip jar and gave Kim $1,000.

Kim broke down, barely containing her emotions.

When asked why she helped Dereniowski, she shared she had been in a similar situation before.

She misses paying bills and has to skip meals just to make ends meet.

“It sucks when nobody wants to help you,” She said.

And so, she made it a mission that she wouldn’t make other people go through the same pain she went through, even through her littlest actions.

Dereniowski has been creating moving videos such as these.

He wants to show the world that, most of the time, those who don’t have much are the most generous people you’ll ever meet.

His stories have attracted millions of people all over the world.

He has 6.5 million subscribers on YouTube and 14 million more on TikTok.

He is also a staunch advocate for mental health and he co-founded the Mental Health Movement.

In an interview with UNILAD, he said he uses his social media platform to raise awareness, destigmatize, and motivate people to seek help when needed.

When it comes to the sweet cashier, Dereniowski didn’t stop there.

He created a GoFundMe page for Kim, which currently has raised nearly $11,000!

Don’t you love it when kindness has a domino effect?
