- A local woman has taken to Facebook to share how she had forgotten her groceries hanging on a trolley at a shopping centre
- When she returned to look for the packet, an honest man returned it to her
- Locals have since joined hands to donate money to the man after displaying such integrity
A South African woman named Karin Joranda du Plessis recently took to Facebook group ImStaying to share how she had mistakenly left a packet of groceries worth R500 on the back of a trolley.
She then explains that although she had already lost hope in finding the bag of foodstuffs, she still returned to the shopping centre to check if the trolley with the groceries would still be there. Lucky for her a good citizen, Denis Begisha, had found the groceries and returned them to her.
Karin also went on to add that many South Africans who appreciated Denis's act of kindness and display of integrity, decided to join together and send donations to him.
"You leave a grocery bag hanging on the back of your trolley, drive home and realise that you left your R500 worth of goodies in the trolley... you're driving back knowing that it will be gone... but you go and check in any case, because maybe... just maybe a good-hearted soul will keep it or hand it in.
"That good-hearted soul crossed my path today at #Mall@Reds in Centurion. Thank you Dennis! May God bless you in abundance!
"Some people asked me if they could send Denis money. I have sent via my bank cashsend option and just send him the code via SMS," she wrote.
Briefly.co.za also reported Xolani Mdluli and other unmentioned SA youth have managed to melt many hearts with an initiative that is meant to better the lives of the less fortunate. The group have shared an idea called the "FreeBread" campaign to provide bread to the poor.
The post, which was shared in popular Facebook group I'mStaying, read as follows:
"We started a #FREEBREAD campaign, not because we are rich or better than anyone but because we know there are people who have no idea where will the next meal come from, and everyone is going through tough times financial but we saw the need to share the little we have with the community we will never post pictures of beneficiaries of this campaign."
He then goes on to thank everyone who continues to take part in the #FreeBread campaign.
"May God continue to bless everyone who is supporting and contributing towards this campaign there are people who really need the bread and a simple "thank you" goes a long way," he wrote.
