Video: 16 Year Old Insists On Buying Food For Stranger

An Act Of Kindness From A Generous Young Man

When Melanie’s son Ty insisted they buy an extra burger for a man they saw walking down the street. Thankfully, good deeds usually lead to moments of happiness and Melanie was able to capture this one with her phone.

This made me cry. I was extremely reluctant when Ty insisted on buying an extra burger to give to a man we saw walking tiredly down the road. I recorded the transaction because I needed to make sure Ty wasn’t going to get hurt. What I witnessed was unbelievable. They exchanged names, the man was very thankful, and Ty felt extremely satisfied that he made someone’s day better. He is a bigger person then me and I couldn’t be a prouder mom right now. I love the man you are becoming Ty Rodgers. You are going to make the world a better place one good deed at a time!

It’s easy to let the misfortune of others blend into the background. What seems like a small act for one, can make a huge difference to someone else. Thank you, Ty, for having such a big heart. Moments like this inspire all of us.
