Man In Line Asked A Woman If She Was Buying Supplies For Flood Victims, But Didn’t Expect Her Reply…

So I went to Walmart today in Marksville, and I was third in line. There was an older woman checking out, a middle aged couple behind her, and I was next. Well, I noticed the woman checking out had almost every basic item you could need: shampoo, conditioner, tooth paste, tooth brush, hair brush, a couple of pairs of shoes, some clothes, basic makeup items…. Etc…. I didn’t think anything of it but as she was almost done (her total was over $350) the man in front of me asked her Are you sending this stuff to flood victims?’

And the woman said, ‘Actually sir, I am a flood victim, I lost everything I owned and didn’t have time to even grab my purse. There is water up to my roof. I’m staying here with my daughter until I can figure things out.’

And just like that, the man handed the cashier his credit card and paid for the woman’s things. She cried, his wife cried, and then I cried. It was so touching to see someone be so selfless, especially in this trying time for Louisiana! Pay it forward
