In February of this year, a security camera’s picture of a homeless man celebrating a paycheck for his first week’s wages went viral. The homeless man, still unidentified, was seen leaving the company office with a check in hand and an uncommon joy. Understanding that homeless is so difficult to remove yourself from, it’s easy to see why this man would skip and celebrate all the way to the bank!
Given a job by “Central RPL” in West Bromwich, UK, the man didn’t have to travel far from his homeless shelter for his first weeks of work. A security guard at the company saw the man’s celebration on camera, and decided to share his joy with the internet, saying “It might seem like nothing to most, but this guy has really won me over. His reaction as he left was absolutely priceless.”
With “absolutely nothing”, the homeless man was eating from daily handouts at a local church. The security guard went on to explain: “Taking into account he doesn’t know where his next meal is coming from and doesn’t eat the best, every single morning he offers me a chocolate bar or some of his coffee.” This kind soul continued to share, no matter how little he had!
