Mathe shared a throwback story on the Facebook page #ImStaying, detailing how her faith was restored in humanity.
She revealed that a year ago, she and her daughter were at Checkers in Kroonstad. The mom went on to explain her daughter wanted a toy but she did not have enough money to buy it.

However, a white man overheard the discussion and he decided to buy the young girl the toy she wanted.
"On our way out this white guy came running, just put this unicorn in her hands and left," Mathe said in the post.
Her full post read:
