Twitter user Kevin Cate was in a Waffle House in Midway, Florida, when he saw a man sitting at a table with some money spread out in front of him. Kevin asked the man what the story was with the money and he explained that for the last eight years, he’s been handing out $1 and $5 bills to strangers at Waffle House (his favorite restaurant) and elsewhere. The man said he’s given out more than $13-thousand to total strangers in that time.
The man went on to explain that when his mother passed away, the last thing she said to him was “Love Every Body.” So the man decided to do just that, handing out money to anyone and everyone he meets. Every person who he gives money to also gets a little note with the words his mother said to him on her deathbed.
Kevin posted the story to his Twitter account and the tweet has gone viral, has been retweeted over 10-thousand times, and liked more than 60-thousand times. Twitter users have also responded to the post with their own stories about spreading kindness.
