Ryan Cook and his two friends grabbed a bite at a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Corpus Christi, Texas in an evening. However, these boys noticed a destitute man sitting close to them in a table. This man called Eddie, he was counting his change and struggling to find sufficient money to buy a meal.
This man was holding a Bible and a photo of Jesus. One of the staff members said that Eddie came into the restaurant more often, but very rarely he asked for handouts — except for when it came to his darling dog, Socks. So when Eddie receives any food from the restaurant, firstly it goes to his socks. After that, he walks to fill the dog’s bowl.
On the same night, Eddie was about to receive a surprise from three teenage friends call Ryan, Joshua, and Alberto. They bought some gift cards for Chick-Fil-A. so that Eddie can get it.
However, they decided that wasn’t good enough.
Next, these three boys left the restaurant and went to the Dick’s Sporting Goods. They managed to spend $50 on a brand-new jacket, a winter hat, three shirts, and a first-aid kit. Ultimately, Dick also donated $20 and some extra display things.
Then they went back to the restaurant, there was Eddie and he was still counting his change at his table. However, Ryan manages to record the scenario with his cell phone as they walked back inside to their same spot.
You can watch the moment of Eddie’s reaction by clicking the below video. It’s something everyone should definitely see. Just setting an example for everyone else,” Ryan said in FB.
“Be selfless and do good for others, then the world would be a better place for everyone. Felt the need to post this to inform others to do better, not to gain anything from it.”
“There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others.”
