- An elderly woman became the toast of the town following her good deed at a shopping centre
- She noticed a woman who was queuing to buy school clothes at a clothing store
- The mother admitted to not being able to afford the shoes and socks, but the kind woman generously offered to pay for everything
Mary Anne Grobler had some urgent matters to attend to and was on the way to the bank.
She passed by a Pep store and for some reason, the queue of shoppers caught her eye and she decided to enter the store.
Mary Anne felt instinctively drawn to the third woman in the queue, who had a batch of school clothes for her children.
Mary Anne struck up a conversation with her and soon discovered that the mother was forced to forego the school shoes and socks due to a lack of affordability.
The woman was left in disbelief when Mary Anne offered to pay for her items.
To put the cherry on top, Mary Anne also asked the woman to get a school bag and any other school supplies that she required.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Mary Anne's generosity did not end there and she did the exact same for two other people.
One of the grateful beneficiaries asked to take a photo with Mary Anne and the story has gone viral via the #ImStaying Facebook group.
Una Stoffels said,
"Those who do good to others, God bless them abundantly."
Monica Bekker added,
"God bless you for your kindness, and meeting the needs of those who have not got, bless you."
Nat KaKundlane Shabs shared her admiration for the group as a whole:
"This group brings tears to my eyes....such love ...such togetherness....God bless you."
Phumzile Zandy Msimango Maseko echoed those sentiments:
"So much love in this country, why didn't we experience it long time ago, but the same I am staying because of this group."
