- A South African man recently recounted how he was heartily praised for sacrificing his Sunday to pick up rubbish in his area
- According to his inspirational post, a kind man stopped him to thank him for dedicating his time to creating a healthier environment
- Soon many others were praising him too, also promising to take similar initiatives in their areas
A South African man named Zando Bakari recently took to Facebook's ImStaying to share a hearty post about how he received praises from a gentleman and his partner who had witnessed him taking some time to clean up the area he lives in.
"Today as I was picking up rubbish around my street a gentleman stopped with his motorbike, looked at me for a minute or so, and decided to approach and asked me if was indeed cleaning the environment. I was already having three bags full of rubbish.
"He was so touched seeing somebody on a Sunday volunteering his time to clean the environment. I was so touched by his reaction and his appreciation. Because I was very touched I even forgot to ask his name.
"However what touched me the most was, he went to his place and informed someone, not sure if is a wife, girlfriend, friend, or relative. They then both came to me and had great conversation generally appreciating what I did. To see people appreciating the very little that one does for the community is indeed HEARTWARMING and because of that IMSTAYING," he wrote, obviously very proud of himself.
Meanwhile, Stayers had this to say:
Lori Schappe-Youens said:
"Thank you Zando! We need millions more like you."
Alida Wray said:
"Thanks, Zando you are an example for others. I do hope that others will be inspired to do the same in their communities. Well done sir."
