A Texas teen will now get a college education and it’s thanks to her random act of kindness going viral.
Evoni Williams works in a La Marque, Texas, Waffle House was saving her money to go to college before she was photographed helping a 78-year-old man cut his food into small pieces that he could chew.
Laura Wolf, the woman who took the photo, posted it on Facebook where the act of kindness proceeded to go viral; receiving thousands of shares and likes. It also caught the attention of Texas Southern University who came through with a $16,000 college scholarship to help Williams to study business management.
Williams said her kind act was “something I would do any other day.” She went on to say that the man required help because his hands were “not functioning too well.”
“My hands are not up to par,” Charpentier said. “If I want to cut my meat, I look like I’m stabbing it.”
The act of kindness also got the mayor of La Marque involved. The mayor declared March 8, 2018 “Evonni ‘Nini’ Williams Day” in her honor. The announcement brought Williams to tears.
Here is Wolf’s Facebook post that got the ball rolling.
“I don’t know her name but I heard this elderly man tell her his hands don’t work too good. He was also on oxygen and struggling to breathe. Without hesitation, she took his plate and began cutting up his ham. This may seem small but to him, I’m sure it was huge. I’m thankful to have seen this act of kindness and caring at the start of my day while everything in this world seems so negative. If we could all be like this waitress & take time to offer a helping hand…. #wafflehouse #kindness #givingback #offerlove#bekind #goodnews”
