Most of the times, people undervalue the kind and touching acts of people, but luckily this lovely gesture by a supermarket employee got its due.
Jordan Taylor who works in a supermarket has turned into a darling overnight for his beautiful gesture. Not just that, he has also received $126,000 for his college tuition.
He had all the patience while he was working to be kind to an autistic customer and allowed him to fill shelves. It started when Jordan noticed Jack Ryan watching him refill the coolers. He asked the 17-year-old boy if he would like to help since he looked interested.
Then, Jordan showed him how it’s done and started to assist him as Edwards arranged them on the shelf. The sweet moment was captured by Jack Ryan’s dad. It was shared on Facebook by his sister, Delaney Edwards Alwosaibi.
She posted: “Talk about a stand-up young man!!!! We all know autism makes going out difficult, and sometimes grocery stores can be a challenge. This young man took the time to slow down and allow Jack Ryan to help for over 30 minutes, guiding him as he finished his task.”
Touched by his humble act, Delaney and the people who watched the video decided to start a GoFundMe page to raise money for Jordan to send him to college.
Apparently, Jordan loves math and might want to be a teacher someday. Well, with that kind of patience he can surely be a favourite with students if he turns out to be a teacher.
The campaign initially had a $10,000 goal and was increased to $100,000. But Jordan was able to get more than $126,000 because of his amazing act.
