We often see street vendors asking for alms but never bothered to give them some. But this foreigner bought a sampaguita street vendor new shoes and clothes. Because why not?

On a Facebook post by Mara Karmela, she saw a foreigner and a kid on a Nike store on her way home. With the people taking photos of them, she went on to check out if she probably know the guy.

Upon checking them out, the foreigner went on to the counter and paid 6,000 pesos for a pair of shoes and gave it to the kid. In exchange, the kid gave him all the sampaguitas he was selling. This is when she came into tears.

Moving on, the two went to look for clothes but this is when she stopped documenting the incident.

Walked into a Nike store on my way home. Saw the sales people having their photo taken with a foreigner. I was looking around, wondering if I should have known this guy. Is he famous? (In fair, gwapo siya. Di ko lang type yung super tattoo all over his body.)

He went to the counter. Paid 6,000 pesos for shoes, and gave it to this kid sitting at the corner. He was asking the girl where the nearest store for clothes were and she gave him directions to SM.

In exchange for the shoes, the kid gave him all the sampaguita he was selling. (Naiyak po ako ng slight.) The foreigner said why don't you wear the shoes already, to which the kid replied: "Hindi po pwede. Baka kunin ng mga bata."

So they went off to SM to buy clothes. Gusto ko silang sundan at idocument lahat. Kaso na-shy na ako.

Both were so happy. Even the people around were watching. Hay, world! Faith in humanity restored! Salamat, Sir!
