A homeless man, Robert, had not eaten for more than 24 hours, so he approached a complete stranger at a filling station for some spare change.
Instead of Max Zahir obliging the man and giving him what he was asked for, he invited him for lunch at a nearby eatery, Understanding Compassion reports.
As the kind stranger was ordering for lunch, Robert could not just stop being emotional as he was thanking him.

The emotional outpour moved Max so he decided to help the man more. He told him he takes the route every day and if the man meets him at the gas station, he will keep buying him free lunch or dinner.
“I just wanna do something, and maybe one day you’ll get to your feet, and just pay it forward. And just… stay positive okay….You take care alright… just stay hopeful.”
Nobody had shown me this love in a while
The homeless veteran could not hold back his tears. Robert said that nobody had ever shown him that much kindness in a long while.
After Max shared the video of the man online, it quickly went viral. He set up a GoFundMe with a deposit of R144 344 and it has since exceeded R288 688. Apart from that, Max also offered to get him a job.
