She Answered Her Door And A Stranger Handed Her This - Collapses When She Sees What’s Inside

A social media user named "gingersnap1316" posted the story below back in the fall of 2014, and not surprisingly, the story went viral in just hours.

It’s good to know that some wealthy people understand just how blessed they are and choose to share generously with others.

The story begins with a ring on the doorbell. The writer of the story is evidently a young woman as she identifies herself as the daughter of “Karen” to the kind-looking middle-aged man standing in her doorway when she answers the door.

The man smiles at her answer and hands her an envelope with “Open Me” written across the top. He tells her to give the envelope to her mother and gives her another big smile as he leaves.

Apparently her mom wasn’t home, because the post goes on to note she literally fell to the floor when she opened the envelope to find 10 $100 bills and a letter.

See the text of the letter below:

“Please accept this gift as an act of random kindness. A cherished member of our family devoted much of her time and resources to helping people through ‘Random Acts Of Kindness.’ She gave to others in many ways, and always did so anonymously. One way our family has chosen to honor her memory is to continue in the tradition of helping others in the community with acts of random kindness.

A ‘Random Act Of Kindness’ does not have to involve the giving of money. It can be as simple as sharing your time with someone, lending an ear, or offering a compliment. The most important part is that the act is unsolicited and done with no expectation of anything in return.

Although we do not know you personally, other members of our community identified you as a deserving recipient of this gift. Please use this money in any way you see fit, whether to alleviate some financial strain or to provide you the opportunity to do something special for yourself.

We ask for nothing in return, but hope that you are encouraged to consider ways in which you can make a difference for someone else, and motivated to embrace the idea, and to carry on the tradition.”
