Kind gestures are something we love here at Happiest. Sometimes it’s hard to remember that there are still good people in the world, but we want to change that. Here we have a story of a man who literally gave a homeless man the shirt off his back.
A video has recently gone viral by showcasing a true act of human kindness towards somebody less fortunate. After spotting a homeless man without a shirt and shivering on the subway, a guy knew he had to help out.
Joey Resto is a 23-year-old man filled with compassion. He was traveling on the Downtown train one night when he spotted a homeless man. Other passengers were standing at a distance because of his odor, but Joey wasn’t phased.
He went straight to the homeless man who was shirtless and shivering. He then handed him the shirt off his back
It was freezing that night. He looked cold and hungry, he looked so weak and frail. I had to help him, or he would not put it on.
Joey removed his shirt and helped the homeless man into it. When he saw the man was still shivering, Joey then gave him his hat too.
Resto wasn’t aware that somebody was filming his random act of kindness. But the video has now gone viral. Annie Martinez, the mother of Joey’s girlfriend said, “I thought, wonderful thing he did because we have to help others in need.”
Joey’s girlfriend, Yanisleidy Martinez, said “The fact that he gave clothes off his back so they could be warm, I thought it was pretty great,”
Don’t forget to watch this man give the shirt off his back to a homeless guy in the video below. Also, at Happiest we love hearing all of your opinions. So please let us know what you thought of the article in the comment section. 🐝
