Humanity is still alive and this story actually confirms this fact. A New Jersey woman was saved because of the kindness of a homeless man. We often think that we’ll help those in need when we’ll earn enough money. This man proved the opposite of this notion.

This woman ran out of gas in Philadelphia but all thanks to this homeless man who helped her get back to her home. Kate McClure, 27yo, was going on her way to pay a visit to her friend. Suddenly her car’s gas tank ran out of the gas while she was on I-95.

The woman pulled over and began to worry as she couldn’t see someone nearby to help her refill her tank. She had no money in her pockets. A homeless man approached the woman who somehow sensed that the woman wasn’t doing quite well.

Johnny, the homeless man, told the woman that it wasn’t safe around. He decided to help the woman, so he went by and bought gas for her with his last $20. McClure felt quite a gratitude for the homeless man and she couldn’t express her happiness. She promised the man to help him out of his situation. “A big promise to make!” indeed.

She told the entire story to her boyfriend and he felt quite positive as the homeless guy had helped his love in the hard times. They decided to raise some money for the homeless guy. McClure and her boyfriend Mark D’Amico raised around $23000 so far, to help the homeless man. The original goal was to raise $10,000 but people are so overwhelmed with the story that they decided to donate more.

McClure said that she never ran out of the gas before, as it was the first time so she was feeling quite nervous. Johnny then approached her, “He saw me pull over and knew something was wrong. He told me to get back in the car and lock the doors. A few minutes later, he comes back with a red gas can. Using his last 20 dollars to make sure I could get home safe.” – she wrote.

McClure had no money at that time but the sweet gesture of the homeless man made her feel so good that she promised him some help. She then came back to that spot some days later and repaid him for the gas, gave him a jacket, gloves, a hat and warm socks.

The girl wants to help the homeless man, she was quite moved by the selfless gesture of the man. The girl described her plan to help the homeless man, with the money she raised, she’ll give him a car, 4-5 month of expense and an apartment with an upfront rent payment.
