Girlfriend Secretly Recorded Him And Posted The Video Online That Went Viral.

In Bendigo, Australia, David Love went into a McDonald’s for his regular morning coffee, and was at the counter preparing to order when he spotted an older gentleman next to him. The elderly man was fumbling through his change trying to put together enough money to pay for his breakfast.

When it looked like the older man was having trouble, David stopped him and paid for it himself. Then, David gave the man $20. David’s girlfriend, Melanie, captured the endearing moment on video and posted it online. For his kind gesture, the older man gave David his change and said, “That’s for your next morning coffee… put it in your pocket.”

David did not know Melanie was videotaping, but his girlfriend made a very valid point: “Your true character is revealed when nobody’s watching.”

STOP SCROLLING, this WILL make your day, I was in tears 🙏 This man melts my heart 💓 I had no idea what he was up to as he ordered his morning coffee but quickly realised and couldn’t not video this incredible act of kindness. 💖 Your true character is revealed when nobody’s watching Oh and you wouldn’t believe it, his surname is LOVE 💕 He bought this old mans coffee, breakfast and gave him $20 🙌🙏 Oh and I told him I wasn’t videoing as he would’ve made me turn it off 🤷‍♀️ #caughtintheact #payitforward #heartofgold #workhardtogivemore #domorehavemoregivemore #actofkindness #teamlove

A short time after the video was posted, the 88-year-old man’s grandson contacted Melanie to thank her for posting it and David for his generosity. He also said that his grandfather had dementia and had recently lost his wife and daughter and very much appreciated the stranger’s kindness.
