A grateful South African woman recently took to Facebook's ImStaying group to share a heartfelt appreciation post for the helpful man that took her husband in after he was stranded in the rain due to car trouble.
"Unfortunately I don't have a pic to go with my story, but I need to share:My husband (a big,white,bearded farmer) had car trouble in pouring rain last night close to a small town 100's of km's from home (where he was working).
"Looking for help and accommodation, dirty and soaking wet,the guesthouses could not accommodate him.A good samaritan (black man) came to his rescue next to the road, invited him to stay the night at his house and even offered him breakfast.Can't thank you enough for your hospitality, sir," she wrote.
Soon locals were in the comment section thanking the kind man for his good deed on that evening. Read a few of their comments below.
Carol Ann Godfrey said:
"There sure are millions of wonderful people in South Africa."
Mary Datlen Suter said:
"Great story. If only we could all get past this nonsense and see each other in more loving ways. Good for us to hear/read. Thanks all around."
In similar heartwarming, Briefly.co.za news, hearing about good deeds and random acts of kindness can bring a smile to anyone's face. Lately, many people have been called out for 'clout-chasing' when they video or take pictures of their good deeds.
That's where Eddie Mkandla's story differs. Eddie said he was walking in the Johannesburg CBD on a chilly day recently when an unknown man stood next to him waiting for the robot to turn green.
The man was holding a plastic bag from a clothing store. There was a group of car guards and vagrants huddled under a shed nearby. The unknown man walked over to them and pulled out a few brand new jerseys from his plastic bag which he handed to them.
