Every once in a while we hear inspirational stories about people helping out those who are in need. Whether it be something small like holding the door for someone or something big like giving away a free makeover, these things make a huge difference.
But for the most part, homeless people are usually looked down on or ignored by the people who walk past them. Lots of people see homelessness as being connected to laziness when in reality many of them are mentally ill or lost everything from tragic events.
However, stories that involve people helping those who are in need bring back a sense of faith in humanity. This particular story will definitely have you a bit teary-eyed, or it’ll inspire you to get up and make a difference in someone else’s life.
Staff members working at Little Caesars in Fargo, North Dakota, notice a man digging through their trash every day.
He would catch staff members looking at him, and they claimed that he looked embarrassed when they’d catch him.
However, staff members simply assumed that the homeless man had no other choice but to feed himself out of their trash.
Staff members couldn’t bear to watch this man continue doing what he was doing. So they typed a note and put it in the window of the store.
The note said: “To the person going through our trash for their next meal, you’re a human being and worth more than a meal from the dumpster…”
It continued, “Please come in during operating hours for a couple of slices of hot pizza and a cup of water at no charge. No questions asked.”
The employees aren’t sure if the homeless man ever did end up coming in and getting food, but that note really showed that there are people out there who care.
It was later discovered by a local paper that this particular Little Caesars has a history of doing things for the less fortunate. They donate their ready-to-order pizzas to homeless shelters.
