An energetic grandmother named Carol Flynn decided to step in and help a thrifty young mother who had been ‘counting her pennies’ at the local Walmart store in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
It was a random act of kindness, a private moment between the two women, but a watching stranger caught the scene on video and posted it online to inspire others. On Sunday night, she saw a young mom remove three of the four large boxes of diapers in her shopping cart and put them aside because the store wouldn’t price-match the items on more than one item.
So Flynn walked over and placed the three 148-count packs of Pampers back in her cart and insisted on paying for them.
“My wife and I were speechless at this warm hearted and kind act of generosity.,” said Jason Yoshino, who shot the video surreptitiously. “There are some amazing people in this world.”
Yoshino reports that at the end of the encounter, “the older gal tells her to pay it forward someday.”
