A sandwich shop owner, Ashley Jiron, noticed that someone had been going through her rubbish looking for food. So she decided to write them a note and put it on the shop front window.
“To the person going through our trash for their next meal…
“You’re a human being and worth more than a meal from a dumpster. Please come in during operating hours for a classic Pb&j, fresh veggies, and a cup of water at no charge. No questions asked.”
Her act of compassion has since gone viral and been praised all around the world.
Ms Jiron said that when she realised someone had been going through her rubbish looking for their next meal it “hurt her” and she felt she had to act.
She told KFOR, “I think we’ve all been in that position where we needed someone’s help and we just needed someone to extend that hand and if I can be that one person to extend that hand to another human being then I will definitely do it.”
We need more people like you in this world Ashley!
