What's On The Wall Of This Pizza Shop Blows Homeless Man Away After Not Being Able To Afford To Eat

One Philadelphia pizza shop is taking that whole “brotherly love thing” to a new level. Rosa’s Fresh Pizza has implemented a “pay it forward” system where customers can donate an extra dollar on their order to help provide free pizza to the homeless.

According to Shareably, it’s the highlight of the day for some people in the neighborhood.

“I have been homeless on and off for the past five years…but at least I know I can look forward to 11 o’clock when I can get some fresh hot pizza,” a homeless man said.

All of the donations are displayed on the wall with sticky notes. The walls of Rosa’s Fresh Pizza are now filled with sticky notes. It started when a customer walked into the pizzeria and said he would pay for a slice of pizza in advance for the next homeless person that came in.

Owner Mason Wartman wanted to remember the moment forever so he stuck a sticky note on the wall to remind him. The parlor has given away 10,000 slices since that day.

“I feel welcome, you know, I feel like I almost bought the slice, but I know I didn’t,” another homeless said.

Wartman said that he ran into a homeless person he used to give pizza to who was able to get off the streets. He came back the day he got a job so he could buy someone else a slice of pizza.
