When 19-year-old John Lopez Jr. started working at Walmart, he began to put all of his paychecks into a college fund. However, the Texas teenager recently dipped into his own savings to help out a customer in need.
John was working on a cash register when a lady came to his checkout with a cart full of groceries. While John Lopez Jr. was ringing up her items, he looked up and saw that the woman was crying.
The customer had realised that she didn’t have enough money to pay for her groceries. The ordeal had left her feeling distressed.
Immediately, John Lopez Jr. knew that he wanted to do something to help
I just felt in my heart that the Lord told me I had to help her. OK, I got you… I got you.
Without any hesitation, John selflessly handed the lady $110 of his own money to pay for her groceries.
Laci Smith was standing in line at the checkout when she noticed John’s random act of kindness unfold. She quickly took a photo of the young man and shared his good deed on Facebook.
Now, John’s story has gone viral and a GoFundMe page has been set up to help raise money for John’s college tuition.
This year I’d like to keep the Christmas spirit alive by giving back to this young man. The comments that I’ve seen about this gentleman is extraordinary. He touches a lot of lives on a daily basis. I’d like to give back to him for constantly giving himself to our community. He is also trying to save money to put himself into college. Let’s come together as a community and pay John’s tuition. He will do big things!
Incredibly, John’s Just Giving page has already raised over $31,000 to go towards his college fund. It’s amazing what a community can do when they all come together. I guess it’s true what they say about karma. What goes around, comes around threefold!
