Rapper/actor Ludacris helped to make one woman’s day on Monday by buying her groceries.
Therra Jaramillo has been dealing with difficult times since her husband lost his cancer battle and earlier this week (30Jul18), she visited a Whole Foods grocery store in Georgia to buy food for herself and her rescue animals.
Jaramillo’s friend gave her a gift card to the store, but the amount was not enough to cover her groceries, which led to a scene during which Ludacris, the shopper in front of her, offered to cover her bill.
“He turned to me and he said, ‘I got this’,” she said. “And I looked at him, and he said, ‘All of this, don’t put anything back’.”
Jaramillo began to tear up at the register, but she didn’t realise who the Furious 7 star was at first.
“I kept looking at him, and thinking, ‘This man is an angel’,” she said. “And (the cashier) goes, ‘You know that’s a famous rapper… That’s Ludacris‘. And I went, ‘What! What!’ and I screamed.”
Jaramillo went home and shared her experience on social media, which has since gone viral.
“He gave me a gift that is not perishable…,” she says. “Just like that, I thought how powerful kindness really is. And how life-changing unexpected kindness is. Everybody can do something. Kindness is one of the most powerful currencies in the world, in that the more you spend it, the richer you get.”
