A TikTok video went viral showing a homeless window washer breaking down in a convenience store after a heartwarming act of generosity.
The homeless man had been cleaning windows for $1 in the hopes of saving up for a pair of glasses and had managed to make $11 that day, an amount he appeared to be fairly pleased with. Little did he know that he was about to get a surprise.
In the video, TikTok star @akramadinas shows the homeless man break down in tears of joy after being given $500. The eyeglasses that he needed to be able to see properly cost $150 from Walmart, this means the unexpected gift would leave him with plenty left over for other essential items.
The man can be seen in tears hugging the generous person who gave him the money, declaring that he would be going to get his glasses the very next day.
As of this writing, the video which has so far been viewed over 2.5 million times has had a heartfelt impact on those who’ve seen it.
“You gave him more than just glasses, you gave him hope,” one person commented.
“This is what rich people should be doing and if I get rich ima help people out so much,” said another commenter.
All the best of luck to this homeless man as he finally gets the glasses he needs and a basic life that so many of us take for granted.
