Once a Fort Lauderdale man heard the news that a hurricane was rushing towards his home, he made the decision to prepare for what was coming by ordering some supplies online. When the package came to his home, he would believe what was hidden inside the box.
Hurricane Irma was headed towards the state of Florida, so Brian Humphreys, like many others in the Florida area, made sure to get prepared and buy some supplies to help them through the storm. Humphreys chose to shop online so he could be the vast crows in the stores around his home. Thinking that this would of been a smarter idea, he was left surprised to see what was hidden inside when he package was left at his home.
In fact, what he found was so unusual that he decided to turn to social media to share what he had found. As he expected, people were left in disbelief over what the Kmart employees had placed inside his order box, and now, it’s going viral. Remarkably, along with all of his items, Brian discovered a simple card inside the box, but that’s not even what left everyone stunned. It seems the employees took it upon themselves to include a little something inside the card as well.
“I ordered some hurricane supplies from Kmart online,” Brian wrote in his Facebook post. “When the box arrived I found this card inside from the employees at the Kmart in Hillsboro, Ohio. There really are some awesome people in the world,” he added, along with photos of the shocking discovery.
According to Love What Matters, the outside of the card read, “Just thought it might cheer you to know that someone’s been thinking of you…” with the word “Floridians” handwritten below the inspiring message. But, that’s not all. When he opened up the card, $25 fell out, and message inside read, “And wishing you Floridians brighter, better tomorrows. From 4 employees from Kmart in Hillsboro, Ohio. P.S. We wish it was more!”
Although it’s heartbreaking to see so many people affected by the wrath of multiple hurricanes, there is one thing good that has come from it — kindness. People from all across the country have put aside their differences and have come together to help in as many ways as they can. Some people have traveled to the affected areas, others have donated items, while some have done exactly what these employees at Kmart did – offered whatever they could to make someone smile.
It may seem like the world is a disgusting place, full of nothing but hate, but that is not the case. The media thrives off of the ugly in the world and doesn’t want to show us all the kind things people are doing for one another. Luckily, thanks to social media, we have the power to bring uplifting stories of unity to the masses, so don’t forget to pass it on.
