Every day we hear horror stories about what is going on in the news. Sometimes the world can seem like a scary place filled with bad things. Every day there seems to be another awful story which can leave us questioning mankind. So it’s nice there is kindness and some amazing people in this world.
Tegan Langley was lucky enough to meet one of these incredible people, and she was stunned by his random act of kindness.
She was sitting in a McDonald’s car park when a man walked up to her car. She explained what happened next on her Facebook page and it has since been shared thousands of time. Here is what she wrote:
“A beautiful miracle happened to me today. While sitting in Pimpama McDonald’s carpark waiting for an appointment a gentleman who I later found out was named Tony approached my car window. He asked if I knew about the state of my tires. I explained that I knew I needed new ones but at the moment simply couldn’t afford it. He asked me if I would follow him to Bridgestone Pimpama across the road to see what they could do for me. This complete stranger, Tony explained he couldn’t live with himself if he walked away from the situation knowing they were about to blow at anytime. Tony didn’t expect anything in return but asked me that one day when I’m in the position where I’m able to help someone I pay it forward. $535 dollars, a lot of tears on my behalf, a few hugs, three brand new tires, a wheel alignment later and the offer to fuel up my car he left. No last name, no contact number, Just Tony the gentle giant with his two beautiful sons teaching them a life lesson.
Tony if this ever reaches you, thank you! Thank you for your utterly selfless act, your kind words, for restoring my faith in humanity. From the bottom of my heart thank you!”
Tegan was completely stunned by his generous gesture and decided to share the story on Facebook. Her post has been shared thousands of times and we hope this not only reaches Tony so he sees what an incredible impact he made, we also hopes it inspires others. It’s about time we hear more positive stories about kindness and selfless acts and stop focusing on all the negativity. Share this story to keep the positivity going!
