Have you ever received a gift from a stranger? Sometimes it's hard to believe that a stranger would do such a kind thing. That's what happened in this Seattle suburb.
According to Kiro 7:
Norah Wall and Ruthie Bridgman had set up outside of a Grocery Outlet store at MLK and Union in Seattle's Madrona neighborhood when a Good Samaritan approached their booth.
“I remember this lady coming up and she was like, ‘Hey, if I buy all these cookies, will you hand them out to everyone that comes out of the store?’” Ruthie said. “And we were like, ‘Yeah, I guess.’”
The woman spent more than $600.
Norah and Ruthie even had a hard time giving the cookies away.
“Some people just didn't believe that somebody would actually do that,” Norah said.
Incredibly, that random act of kindness didn't end there.
It made its way inside the Grocery Outlet, where Cami Nearhoff is a cashier.
“We had a lady in my line, people in front, people in back and she bought all of their groceries,” cashier Cami Nearhoff said.
Nearhoff says people paid it forward all day.
“All day it just seemed like people were doing little things. So I think it kind of inspired people to give back to each other. Whether it was a dollar, someone was short six cents -- all day long it was happening. It was just crazy. Really crazy day,” Nearhoff said.
This troop is excited knowing their cookies could inspire such kindness.
