In order to help hungry people on the street, a compassionate customer has ordered 35 burgers via a delivery app and requested the delivery rider to distribute the order to the needy.
According to Mark Berdan, he received 35 burgers delivery request from a customer named Abby. After picking up the order from a fast-food chain, Abby asked him to give the burgers to hungry people on the street.
“Sinabi niya sa ’kin na, ‘kuya hindi mo na kailangan i-deliver ’yung order dito sa amin. Ipamigay mo na lang sa mga tao nagugutom sa kalsada’ na aking madadaanan,” Mark said.
“Hindi ako makapaniwala, sa dami ng burger na ’yun ipapamigay lang pala ’yun. Sabi ko, ‘joke lang po ba ito?’”
Unsure whether what was happening was true or not, Mark asked the customer many times. He told the customer that he could be reported if he just gave the order away.
But Abby insisted and even asked him to bring home five burgers for his family.
“Nag-tip pa siya sa ’kin ng 100,” Mark said.
Abby, meanwhile, said doing charity work and good deeds weren’t new to them.
“I’ve been doing this for a while na siguro mga 4 to 5 years na through feeding program. Lately nga nagkaroon ng pandemic so maraming nawalan ng trabaho at the same time mas madali kasi ’yung motor na makapagbigay ng food sa kalye so naisip ko na makatulong kay manong, at the same time mas marami siyang mabibigyan ng food,” Abby said.
When asked why she also gave some to Mark, Abby said: “Kawawa naman sila, parang inutusan ko sila eh, so bakit hindi? Para masaya sila at sa family nila.”
The delivery rider who was grateful to Abby shared the story online and it went viral immediately.
“Napakaganda talaga ng kalooban na may mga ganitong tao sa panahon na ito,” he said.
“Maliit lang po sa kanya ’yung naitulong niya pero sa mga natulungan niya, malaking bagay na po, lalo na po sa akin.”
For Abby, it was a way to “pay it forward … Kahit maliit na bagay they can help out eh, wala naman sa amount.”
