This guy did that above-and-beyond nice thing for a stranger you always think you'd do.
Cara Duggan of Belfast, Northern Ireland, wanted to buy her mom a juicer. Her mom was recently diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer, and juicing is a way to get high-density nutrition (and for some of us, to feel a little superior to our coworkers). Juicers are expensive, but Duggan found a used Nutribullet for about $200.
She texted the guy selling it and got a surprisingly kind reply:
In fact, she was so surprised that she couldn't quite process what was happening. The Nutribullet guy—now appropriately saved in her phone as "Kindest Man Ever!"—was paying for a free, brand new Nutribullet.
Duggan picked up the Nutribullet, and shared her story on Facebook, where it quickly went viral, because when you find yourself weeping at your phone, you want to explain why to your concerned friends.
Now, this stranger's extreme generosity has inspired other strangers to donate to Cara's mom on their GoFundMe page. They've already raised £9,375 (that's about $14,500 if you're too lazy to calculate it), which is almost double the £5,000 they set out to crowdsource.
On Facebook, Cara writes that this money has actually influenced the treatment options they can consider for her mom.
Whoa. The Internet is weird.
