An inspiring young man has shown South Africans what it looks like to truly care for others more than oneself.
Jonas Jonas took to Facebook to share his story. The unemployed young man was in town handing out his Curriculum Vitae when he saw a lady begging.
Jonas scraped together R10 - which he would have used to pay for a taxi ride - and gave it to the struggling woman.
The post read:
"So I just woke up and went to my local mall to look for a part time job, as I was done submitting my CV at Spar, I walked my way to the road side to catch a taxi, and I bumped to into this lovely lady."
He added that he managed to scrape together R10 which he planned to use as taxi fare and gave it to the struggling lady.
"Her smile brightened SA as a whole. That's why I am #Staying."
South Africans were touched by the young man's willingness to give away the little he had and they prayed Jonas will land a job.
Vivien Bruwer commented:
"Sweet young man, now I sincerely hope you get the job you have applied for. All the best and thank you."
Sydney T Mogane added:
"It such an awesome gesture... I am crossing fingers and hoping that you get the job. Good luck."
