Woman Bought Some Food for a Beggar, a Minute Later He Gave Her A Note That Made Her Cry

Woman bought some food for a beggar. A minute later, he gave her a note that made her cry. What was on the note that made the woman cry? Watch the whole video clip, and you will be touched by what the gesture of the woman triggered in the man.

Being homeless is not easy, as you can imagine. It is often true that a homeless person did not choose to live like this. Circumstances often cause someone to end up in such a situation. Joey was undoubtedly aware of this when he saw a homeless man in the underground, trembling because he felt so cold. This is what happened next.


Lazaro El Fio boarded the New York underground on a cold night in January 2016. When he saw a homeless man on board, the man appeared cold and sick. He didn’t even have a shirt on to keep him a little warm. Another passenger, Joey Resto, then decided to give the homeless man his white T-shirt.

He even helped him put the T-shirt on while Joey dressed the homeless man. Lazaro was speechless and pulled out his phone. Joey returned to his seat but returned to give the man a hat as well. In the meantime, Lazaro El Feo had filmed the whole thing. Lazaro could not wait to share it with other people, and that is what he did. It generated a lot of response.

Resto didn’t realize that his gesture towards the homeless man would trigger so many reactions among people. Resto grew up in New York City and was no stranger to the underground. At that time, he lived in Bedford Stuyvesant in Brooklyn and worked as a legal assistant in the city.


New York is known for its cold winters. Temperatures can often drop below freezing, and it can snow. At the same time, the city has a major problem with homeless people. The number has grown over the years to the level of the well-known Great Depression in the 1920s.

According to the homeless organization, the percentage of homeless people is 82 percent higher now than it was 10 years ago. In 2017, almost 130,000 people slept in the streets. These people are often overlooked, but Resto saw the man in the underground and took action to help the man with his beautiful gesture.

Resto told ABC News that the temperature was about 7 degrees Celsius that evening. He saw the homeless man sitting in the underground without a shirt on and saw him shivering. He could not believe that the other passengers also saw the man and did nothing. Nobody even came close to the man, and all of them kept their distance.


The man didn’t look well either; it almost looked as if he got beaten up. He was even missing some pieces of hair, was very skinny, and had no outer clothing at all. Resto then decided to record a clip for social media to capture the man’s plight and share it with others, not to ridicule him, but to make people aware of this man’s suffering. “I sat in front of him and made a Snapchat video of the man. It was crazy that everyone just watched him and didn’t do anything,” Resto said.

Resto was very touched to see the man like this. It was obvious that the man was cold and hungry. Resto wanted to help the homeless person and soon came up with a solution. He approached the man and gave him his shirt and a hat. Resto did not realize that Lazaro El Feo was recording this.

Lazaro filmed that Resto took off his shirt and put it on the poor man. Resto even checked if the shirt fitted properly. In an interview with the WABC radio station, Resto said the homeless man looked so weak; he had to help him because otherwise, he would probably have difficulties putting on the T-shirt.


He didn’t care that people were staring at him. “I was wearing a big tank top, so I was ready to withstand the cold,” he joked during an interview with Fox5. While the camera kept filming, Resto returned to the man with a black knitted beanie, which he carefully placed on his head. “It was the least I could do.

However, I didn’t know what his reaction would be,” he told Fox5. He gave the man his shirt because it was the best thing he could do for the man at the time. Resto then invited the man to come to his house with coffee, a hot meal, and more clothes.

The man agreed. However, during the drive to Resto’s house, the man had fallen asleep. When Resto had to get out, he did not want to wake the man. He slept curled up in a corner, and it was probably the first time in a long time that he was warm and comfortable again. Resto did call a homeless shelter to see if the man could receive help. “I hope they find this man; it’s not difficult to recognize him.”


That same evening, Lazaro El Fayo, who had filmed everything, posted Resto’s video on Facebook. His images went viral very quickly. The video has now been viewed more than 14 million times and has generated more than 28,000 responses. People praised Resto. “That was great to see how much compassion flows from one person to another,” Lorraine Clark wrote on Facebook.

Someone else responded with, “Respect for this man. Although many people say that New Yorkers are rude, this gesture proves the opposite. That is how we should all treat each other.” Resto also received a special award from Rockland County lawmakers, and Governor Andrew Cuomo praised him in his State of the Union speech.

Janis Lady Martinez, Resto’s girlfriend at the time, was also full of praise for his actions and said he was indeed a caring person. He noticed that something was not right, and while other people kept staring, he did something about the situation.


Although people on social media applauded Resto’s compassion, and he participated in several interviews, he insisted that he had only done what he thought everyone should do in that situation. “It just came from the heart,” he said to ABC News. “I don’t know how anyone could have walked past him and had the opportunity to give the man some clothes but not do it. What would you have done in such a situation? Do you have a lot of homeless people in the area where you live?”

How would you react if you received a note because you did something good for someone, saying, “I wanted to commit suicide today; because of you, I don’t do that anymore. Thank you, beautiful person”? These were the words that a homeless man called Chris wrote on a small piece of paper after a good-hearted woman had bought him coffee and a bagel. On the Facebook page of “Love What Matters,” someone shared a touching note. Since then, it has had almost 700,000 likes. It was an inspiration for many people to be more friendly towards others who are less fortunate.


It often happens that we people are too busy or too distracted to give some attention to the less fortunate people wandering the streets. We usually keep moving on and look the other way instead of helping out.

We often have prejudices about how these people ended up on the street. If we give them money, we think they might spend it on alcohol or other drugs. Casey Fischer was on her way to Dunkin’ Donuts when she saw a homeless man sitting on the side of the road. He was there singing songs and trying to raise money. He then entered the restaurant and counted his change to see if he had enough to buy something, but apparently he didn’t even have one gyro in his pocket.

Casey saw the man and then did something great. She talked to the man and then bought him a bagel and coffee. She also asked him to sit at a table with her for a while. That is how they got to talking. The man told Casey about his past and that people were mean to him because he was homeless. Unfortunately, his mother had died of cancer, and he didn’t know his father. He had started taking drugs, but that turned him into a person he didn’t want to be.


All he wanted was for his mother to be proud of him. Casey found out that the man’s name was Chris, and she thought he was one of the most honest and sincere people she had ever met. After an hour of talking, she had to go back to her school and say goodbye to Chris, who then asked her to wait so he could write something down. He then gave her a wrinkled receipt and apologized for the shaking of his hand. He smiled and left.

After Chris left, Casey opened the note. It said, “I wanted to kill myself today because of you, I don’t do that anymore. Thank you, beautiful human being.” What a note! How would you feel if you received this note? Give this video a like if you also think this is such a beautiful story.


Since Casey’s post went viral, many people have expressed their admiration for what Casey did. She has inspired a lot of people, and hopefully, all over the world, people are now a bit more friendly to other less fortunate people. Maybe they have some money to spare or even buy something nice for the stranger.

No action is too small to have a positive impact. Maybe one day we will save someone’s life like this. It is heartwarming to see that good deeds can change the lives of others in need.
