On Thursday, 3 October, a social media user, Tertius Gous, shared a letter written by a man who was looking for a job as a gardener.
Gous revealed the man, Charles Kambalame, hand-wrote hundreds of these letters asking for jobs before walking from house to house to drop them in people's mailboxes.
Kambalame started off his letter:
"I humbly stand before you and submit my application for the above underlined post in your house, sir/madam."
Take a look at the letter below:
South Africans reached out to Kambalame to offer him work soon after the post was shared.
Michelle Bezuidenhout wrote in Afrikaans: "Hi everyone, Charles is working for me today. His work is great. My garden looks beautiful. He asked that I should thank everyone for the shares. Especially the person who posted the letter in the first place."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported on another inspiring story involving a gardener. A family helped the man who worked for them start his own gardening company.
