A kind stranger is making waves after she paid for a teacher's trolley of goods which was packed to the top with school supplies. Frank Somerville shared the story of how Nicky Kimako saw Rachael Borsgard waiting to pay in a line at a supermarket in the USA.
According to Rachael, she had gone to various Target stores before landing at one where she filled up her trolley to a point where it was "almost overflowing". As she was getting her purse out to pay, Nicky approached her to ask if she was a teacher.
Nicky then said that she wanted to pay for the supplies. Rachael said she sobbed and told Nicky that it was far too much money. Nicky shook her head at Rachael's response and proceeded to put her card into the machine to pay.
