With Christmas fast approaching, buying gifts online make our lives so much easier. However, we often fail to realize that our timely deliveries are all made due to the sacrifice of some people. Though the holiday season is hectic for them, they never fail to do their duty. While many of us appreciate their efforts, one woman decided to make them smile with a snack box.
According to Pop Sugar, Kathy Ouma wanted to do something for the delivery men and women who are out working, delivering gifts and spreading smiles during the holidays. So, the considerate woman packed a basket full of snacks and drinks and left them at her door. It came with a note of gratitude which said, “Please take some goodies to enjoy on your route. Thank you for making holiday shopping easy.”
While her gesture was sweet enough, she also managed to capture the reaction of one such delivery person through a doorbell camera. An Amazon delivery man named Kareem Earl Reed III had the sweetest reaction to finding free snacks and refreshments while on his usual route. Not expecting a surprise, Kareem was thrilled to see the bag of goodies at his door. In the video captured, the man is seen to keep the package on a chair. He then turns his attention to the basket at the door. He can be heard saying, “Ah, they got some goodies! Wow! Oh, this is sweet! Oh, wow, get out of here!”
Grabbing some snacks, he does a little celebratory dance walking back to the truck and the innocence of it all will simply warm your heart.
The video then shared by Kathy grabbed the attention of several people. She wrote, “THIS!❤️❤️ Made my day! I leave goodies out every year. #AmazonPrime.” Facebook users were quick to react, share and like the adorable video. “This is great, so thoughtful of you and he clearly appreciated your generosity from those moves!” wrote one user.
It garnered 87K reactions and was viewed 16 million times. Soon after the video went viral, Kareem reached out to Kathy to thank her for her generous gesture.
In a Facebook post on 4 December, 2019, Kareem wrote, “Ms. Kathy Ouma, I’m glad I could make you smile that day wit this one.” He even told her that he had forgotten to take lunch that day. “The thing about it is I forgot to bring my lunch that day and I wasn’t feeling good until I got to your house and [saw] the snacks. May the Divine bless your[sic] always for your kindness.”
