A Very Late Pizza Delivery Turns Into an Amazing Act of Kindness for Two Georgia Women

Published

on

There’s nothing more frustrating than when a pizza delivery is late. But for Jennifer West of Atlanta, Georgia, to wait 90 minutes for pizzas to be delivered for her daughter’s birthday party was definitely a huge drag. She never imagined, however, it would eventually turn into an amazing display of love and support for someone struggling to get by.
“What was supposed to be a 40-50 minute delivery, took over an hour and a half without any type of communication,” she recounted on Facebook. “When the pizzas finally arrived, the delivery driver (Pam) was very apologetic, especially knowing how disgruntled I was. She felt so bad, that she spoke with her manager, who spoke with the GM, and they credited all three pizza’s back to us.”

A few weeks after her daughter’s birthday party, West had ordered pizzas again and the same delivery driver, a woman named Pam, arrived once again at her door.

“She remembered us and asked us how we were doing,” West wrote in her post. “She apologized again for last time and said how bad she felt about our order. She thanked me for the generous tip. I only tipped $6. But, she said that she has been making $80-$90 deliveries and people have only been giving $2-$3.”

It’s then that West reveals that Pam began to break down in tears and share that she had been trying to save up to buy a new tire for her car.

“The tire tread on her car was completely worn down. She asked if I knew of anyone who needed their house cleaned, because she needs to save up more money for the tire, especially for work,” West explained. “She also has two granddaughters (two-years-old & almost one) that she hasn’t been able to start Christmas shopping for, because she needs to use the money for the tire.”

West went on to describe the deep burden she felt to help Pam out in any way she could: “I have felt to help her has been placed on my heart. So, this year instead of asking for material things, that I do not really need, I have asked to help this sweet woman out.”

West and her family planned to surprise Pam with a new back tire and a few gifts for her grandchildren, but she also took to Facebook to offer others the opportunity to be a blessing.

What happened next absolutely shocked West as pieces began to fall together to help Pam.

FINAL UPDATE!! Matt WestPapa Johns corporate called me back! I spoke with a wonderful woman, Torri, who told me that…

Several friends, family members, and even total strangers made up a deluge of loving charity and amassed hundreds of dollars in gift cards, several Christmas gifts, and a whole set of tires for Pam.

West also made calls to Papa John’s corporate office and made them aware of Pam’s situation. As it turns out, there is an assistance fund for Papa John’s employees experiencing financial hardship, so Pam will also receive help from her employer.

All of these incredible gifts, however, hadn’t actually been given to Pam yet. West, along with Pam’s manager and the proprietors of NTB, a local auto repair shop, conspired to surprise Pam with the whole bundle and record her reaction, which can be seen about 40 minutes into the video below.

“God is so good!” Pam said in a statement to a local news outlet on the scene.

“We wanted to come alongside you during this season to help ease your burdens and to just lift you up and tell you that you are loved…” West said to Pam, who was wiping away tears. “We love you, we’re here for you.”

WATCH: You Won’t Believe The Way This McDonald’s Customer Just Blessed His Favorite Drive-Through Server

The way he decided to bless her will blow your mind.

Published

Over the last few decades, as fast food joints seem to replace small mom and pop shops nationwide, we often find ourselves lamenting that community and human connection have gone the way of small businesses.

This is, of course, very true in many ways, but that doesn’t mean that the people behind the counter at franchizes belonging to multinational corporations aren’t human and we can’t develop friendships and strong connections with those who serve us our egg McMuffins and coffee in the morning.

Clearly, a strong friendship was formed between Kansas drive-through server Vicki Anderson and local businessman Chris Ellis when Ellis caught wind that Anderson’s car had recently broken down.

But the way he decided to bless her will blow your mind.

Fox News has the story:

[Anderson’s] vehicle — a 1994 Oldsmobile Cutlass Sierra — broke down a few months ago, and Anderson was informed it would cost $500 to repair. The price was more than the car was reportedly worth, according to [The Witchita Eagle]

It just so happened that Ellis’ son, Josh, was selling his 2009 Pontiac GS.

“Fate looked me in the eye when she told me that story,” Ellis told The Wichita Eagle. “I couldn’t stop thinking about it. . . . I said, ‘I have to do something.’”

Ellis decided to purchase the car from Josh so he could gift it to Anderson.

Ellis, who also had the car cleaned and its oil changed and tires rotated, drove the vehicle to Hutchinson Wednesday with his son to surprise the Golden Arches worker.

When they arrived, the two asked Anderson to come out to the parking lot, where they surprised her with the car.

“I didn’t know what to think,” she said of her reaction.

Check out her emotional reaction. Can you imagine getting a gift like this?

Homeless Man’s Dogs Distraught as Their Master is Taken to Hospital. What They Did Next Is Amazing.

Time and time again, dogs demonstrate why they have always been known as man’s best friend.

Time and time again, dogs demonstrate why they have always been known as man’s best friend.

There really is nothing quite like the bond developed between master and loyal dog, which likely comes from their own instinct to be part of a pack.

Any dog owner knows that when you have pups, they see you as their pack leader, and things are never quite right when the pack is split up.

This is precisely what the five loyal dogs belonging to a Brazilian man who lives in the streets demonstrated in an incredibly touching way recently, when their human pack leader was taken to the hospital and they held vigil outside.

Fox News reports:

The man, only identified as Luiz by local media, suffered a stroke last week in the southern city of Cianorte. He was taken to the Santa Cara hospital for treatment, where he was discharged a day later.

His loyal pups followed the ambulance taking their owner away and then spent hours howling outside of the hospital. They kept vigil outside the front door of the hospital, Brazilian newspaper G1 reported.

“The dogs were desperate,” Simone Zilane, a volunteer with the NGO organization Amigos de Patas Cianorte, told G1. “They followed the ambulance, racing after it down the roads and arrived just as Luis was being taken into the hospital. They went mad as they took him and howled non-stop at the entrance.”

Zilane, who photographed the pups, said Luiz was discharged a day later – the dogs none the wiser as he left with his brother through another exit.

“One of our volunteers from the NGO had to fetch Luiz at his brother’s house and take him to where the dogs were for them to leave the front [of the hospital],” Zilane added. “He hadn’t realized they were outside all this time, but he wasn’t too surprised.”

Amigos de Patas explains that Luiz has been living on the streets for over two decades, and refuses to live with his brother or accept a permanent home.

He says that his home is in the streets, and the one time he tried living in a house, his dogs, who had been taken to a shelter, jumped the fence and found him.

With a loyal pack like his, one can imagine Luiz certainly has all the love and companionship he could ask for no matter where he lays his head!
