- A homeless man, Robert, looking for what to eat met his helper in the person of Max Zahir at a filling station
- After Robert approached the man for money to feed, Max bought him lunch and promised to keep doing so every day
- In addition to that, he helped raise over $20,000 (N8,230,000) for the homeless man and an opportunity to get a job
A homeless man, Robert, had not eaten for more than 24 hours, so he approached a complete stranger at a filling station for some spare change.
Instead of Max Zahir obliging the man and giving him what he was asked for, he invited him for lunch at a nearby eatery, Understanding Compassion reports.
As the kind stranger was ordering for lunch, Robert could not just stop being emotional as he was thanking him.

The emotional outpour moved Max so he decided to help the man more. He told him he takes the route every day and if the man meets him at the gas station, he will keep buying him free lunch or dinner.
“I just wanna do something, and maybe one day you’ll get to your feet, and just pay it forward. And just… stay positive okay….You take care alright… just stay hopeful.”
Nobody had shown me this love in a while
The homeless veteran could not hold back his tears. Robert said that nobody had ever shown him that much kindness in a long while.
After Max shared the video of the man online, it quickly went viral. He set up a GoFundMe with a deposit of $10,000 (N4,115,000) and it has since exceeded $20,000 (N8,230,000). Apart from that, Max also offered to get him a job.
He wanted to help his mother
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that as a way to help his mother pay her house rent, a young man took to the street to do what he knows how to do best - play the violin.
With a placard that reads “Need to help my mum with rent. God bless”, the young man would make music on the street as passersby donated.
A woman known as Lexy Kadey saw him and knew that he really needed help. Before that encounter, Lexy had done a Venmo challenge which raised $1000 (N411,470.00).
