With the increasing consciousness of the importance of social media, people have come to see various online platforms as not only places of interaction but of refuge.
Social media is now a 'safe' place where solutions could be provided through crowd-funding. A man, Issa Sikiru Temidayo, who wanted a washing machine got offers for many.
In this report, Legit.ng will be looking at three different times Nigerians were blessed beyond their imagination online.

Nigerians took pity on him and rewarded his hard work. People were amazed that despite the fact that he is disabled, he never allowed that to stop him from building something.
From their widow's mites, many sent him tokens to add to his business so that he could get the necessary things he lacked like an extra television, a standby generator, and an industrial standing fan.
2. Wife who begged for clothes for job-hunting husband
In 2021, a committed wife went under Aproko Doctor's tweet and begged him for some of the clothes he considered giving away.

The wife revealed that her husband has a job interview to attend soon and would need corporate wears for the official meeting.
She got more than what she asked for as Nigerians took pity on her. Perruzzi, a Nigerian musician, offered to send her family some money.
3. Laundryman who asked for a washing machine
A young Nigerian, Issa Sikiru Temidayo, who got fed up with washing clothes with his hands as soaps were dealing badly with his fingers came online to ask for help.
The hard worker said he would appreciate any help he could get from people as he is in serious need of a washer.
Nigerians sent him money. More than four Nigerians in his comment section offered to gift him a washing machine each.
Beyond being kind on social media
It is important that our goodness does not stop on social media alone. There are tens of people in our neighbourhoods without access to the internet who could become better with our help.

Man who treks to work gets help
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a man, Donte Franklin, who walked many miles to his work every day has got the kind of help he would never have imagined months ago.
It all started when a good Samaritan, Michael Lynn, saw Donte walking one day and asked why he was doing so. He revealed that he walks over 8 miles to and from work to be able to put food on his family’s table.
Walking the miles to Buffalo Wild Wings where he works takes him more than two and half hours. No matter how hard his shift was, he repeated the same arduous trek back home.
