Man Buys Stranger’s Groceries When Overhearing Her Tell Her Daughter They Can’t Afford To Eat That Night

A man has recently been getting attention online for his inspiring act. One night, while he was minding his own business, he was confronted with a family in need. He had two options. He could have done the same thing everyone else did in the store and let them figure it out for themselves, or he could be their hero that day and help them out within his means.

The thing is, the man didn’t have much money himself, and he was working two jobs to support himself and his kid. Here’s how he decided on what to do.

It was a day like most for Bear, as he had just pulled two fourteen-hour shifts in a row and needed some food, but had no energy left to make it. He writes this in a post on Facebook and explains that this actually didn’t turn out to be like most days: “I stopped by the grocery store to grab food for dinner and as I was checking out a woman started crying in the next checkout line.”

Bear listened in on the conversation between a mother and her daughter, and it was heartbreaking.
