A heartwarming photo of two women hugging each other has gone viral. It is actually a photo of a Cali woman embracing a homeless woman after she brought her a hot meal in a fast food.
Carmen Mendez’ act of kindness has certainly warmed countless of hearts a few moments after she posted the photo on Facebook. She said that she had no idea that her boyfriend had captured that magical moment.
“As we waited for our order, I saw this homeless lady walk in asking people that were throwing away [their] leftovers if she could have them. Not one person said yes, they all ignored her and threw it away. It broke my heart… I have been volunteering with the homeless now for many years… They don’t repulse me or make me sick to my stomach.” Mendez wrote in her post.
Check out the actual post here:
“As I was gonna throw away my one leftover chicken strip and like five fries, I heard a very quiet voice ask me if I had anything left. I turned around and it was her. I felt like a horrible human being feeding her my leftover chicken strip… she deserved so much more. So I bought her a whole meal… she deserved to eat a hot meal.”, she added.
Mendez said that helping the homeless has been her passion for years — she volunteers on and off at a shelter, and often helps homeless people she finds near her home in Anaheim, California.
This woman is truly remarkable!
