Stranger Leaves Note On Vending Machine At Cancer Hospital, Its Heartfelt Message Is Going Viral.

As we’ve seen before, a small act of kindness can go a long way! Remember the Kroger employee who purchased a flower for a 90-year-old customer on her birthday? How about the Good Samaritan who purchased shoes for a homeless woman on a train? These acts of kindness inspired us, and now another kind act– this time in Manchester, England– is touching hearts around the world.

This special letter came from an anonymous stranger. They placed a note on a vending machine in The Christie, a cancer hospital in Manchester. On the note, the stranger explained that he or she had purchased several of the items in the vending machine– treats like chocolates, chips, and cereal bars– and had left them to feed hungry staff, patients, and visitors.

One nurse said she was left “beaming all day” when she saw the adorable note. Another hospital worker commented that she could hardly believe someone would do this without expecting any sort of thanks.

The note reads,

Please find a variety of snacks in the bottom of this machine that have been paid for. I simply wanted to perform some random at of kindness to try and brighten up someone’s day.

Hopefully there will be something in there for you to enjoy.

Finally, if you can, try and spread the kindness.

Everyone in the hospital was inspired by the note, and hopefully it inspires even more acts of kindness!
