Stranger’s Life-Saving Kindness Has Fellow Mother Feeling “Eternally Grateful.”

Sometimes you just need a fellow mom to swoop in and save the day!

Kirsten Martin of British Columbia, Canada had just left for a much-needed family vacation in Mexico when she realized that they’d left her son’s medication back at home. Panicked, Kirsten decided to post a “Hail Mary” on a local mothers’ group on Facebook. What happened next shocked her — and left her overwhelmed with gratitude!

Facebook post written by kirsten marten that says: completely overwhelmed by and frankly in awe by the random act of kindness sent to us today. we left for mexico without our youngest sons critical medication and posted a hail mary on a local moms group at about 5am asking if anyone may happen to be flying out today or the next day and could bring his medicine with them. marina miller, someone i've never met, let alone spoken to, reached out immediately and in a matter of minutes not only had me sorted out but had the medicine arrive at our hotel when we arrived and paid for it all herself!! her act of kindness left this exhausted and overwhelmed mom welling and filled with love up & set our trip off on the right foot. we are eternally grateful to her & I have to say- i'm fangirling a bit over her now & cant wait to meet her in person. (and to hopefully one day repay the kindness in some way to another mom)

Can you believe it? Marina went out of her way to help a fellow mom and her son. She received no payment or compensation for her effort, she did it just to help someone out.

Let’s all take a page from Marina’s book and do what’s in our power to help others, just because!

Share this story to thank Marina for showing true kindness in an often cruel world.
