- A young boy has displayed an inspiring act of kindess
- He asked his mom to stop the car so he could help someone
- He helped an informal recycler push his trolley up a steep section of road
A 10-year-old boy recently asked his mother to stop the car so that he could help an informal recycler struggling to push his cart up the road. His act of kindness was shared by his mother on social media.
James Hefer left his mother speechless when he performed a random act of kindness on the way to school. It was bin day and the informal recyclers were out on the roads collecting all their recyclables.
The young boy saw a man struggling to push his trolley up a hill and felt the need to help. The mother stopped her car and watched as her son rush out to help the man push his trolley.
After James was done helping the man, his mother offered the man R50 - he refused it. He did welcome a blanket as a gift.
After getting back into the car, James said:
"Wow mom, that was heavy."
James is a student at Pridwin Preparatory School and his mother hopes that his actions inspire his classmates and South Africans alike.
Meanwhile Briefly.co.za reported that a young man took to social media to ask if someone wanted to come to his graduation because his family could not make it, and South Africans' responses gave us goosebumps. His post was met with an overwhelming response which showed Ubuntu is alive and well in South Africa.
