A supermarket employee, Maria Balboa, made a compassionate decision to pay for a financially struggling grandmother’s $137 bill.
The grandmother was deeply touched by the gesture and shared her gratitude in a note. Balboa acted on an impulse that she heard in her head, knowing that she would get the money back on payday.
The grandmother expressed her appreciation in a survey, wishing she could thank Balboa in person.
Balboa’s manager praised her for having a heart and caring for someone in need, despite being a student trying to make ends meet.
Balboa urged others to be kind, as it could make a significant difference in someone’s life. Her actions demonstrated the power of the kindness of strangers.
