A kind stranger brought an elderly woman to tears when he gave her an unexpected Christmas gift! TikToker Neenib Youkana loves to surprise people with acts of kindness, and this year he prepared a beautiful present for someone he hadn’t met yet. Then, he filmed himself in a store asking random shoppers whether or not they’d received anything for the holidays. One 89-year-old’s response was heartbreaking.
“I’m too old, nobody cares,” said the woman, whose name is Laura.
That’s when Neenib knew he needed to change her mind. He decided to hand her the present he’d been saving — a stuffed animal holding an envelope with money inside. Laura was brought to tears when she received this gift given by a total stranger. She revealed that many of her friends were living in nursing homes or had passed away.
“I don’t want you to ever think you don’t have anyone,” Neenib told her. “Because there’s always someone there.”
One act of kindness often inspires another. When Laura got her surprise Christmas present, she decided to use the money inside to spread joy to someone else. She told Neenib that she would treat her friend with Alzheimer’s to lunch!
You don’t always have to spend a lot of money to make someone feel special. Laura loved her gift, but it was the thoughtfulness of the stranger who gave it to her that really touched her heart. With his sweet gesture, Neenib made the elderly woman feel less alone in the world.
