Ashley Jiron, is the owner of P.B. Jams in Warr Acres in Oklahoma. She noticed someone had been looking through her bins for food and decided to post a lovely note on her diner window inviting them in for a free meal.
A customer called Greg King noticed the message and posted a picture of it on his Instagram page with the hashtag #thatswhatlovelookslike – within a couple of days it had been shared thousands of times on social media.
Ashley told Channel 4 News that she hadn’t expected it to receive such a huge response and was just trying to do the right thing.
‘Last week, I had noticed some bags, when I had taken out the trash, were torn open and some of the food was taken out,’
‘That really, it hurt me that someone had to do that – I will not take down that sign until they come in.
‘I think we’ve all been in that position where we needed someone’s help and we just needed someone to extend that hand and if I can be that one person to extend that hand to another human being then I will definitely do it.’
Ashley has now launched a pay-it-forward scheme at her diner. #SharetheNuts
