Boise Man Buys $5000 Worth Of Groceries For Unsuspecting Shoppers
Not too long ago I wrote an article titled "Life Lessons From An 80 Year Old". One of the "lessons" or pieces of advice was... "Make it a habit to do nice things for people who will never find out" This really struck a chord with me because ever since I was a young boy I've believed that we're all on earth to make a positive difference in the lives of others. I've always felt that If I made a positive difference in the lives of others maybe that would cause others to make a positive difference in the lives of my loved ones. Call it pay it forward... call it you get back what you put out or you can call it karma, whatever you call it I hope this gives you an understanding of why I feel the need to share this story.
According to ktvb Juliet Weaver was shopping at Winco when someone offered to pay for her groceries... Upon further investigation, here's what she said:
“Then I found out it was someone's birthday and that was how he chose to spend his birthday was giving his employees money and having them purchase groceries for the other patrons,”.
Who would do such a thing? Say hello to Quest Groups' CEO, Joe Kosakowski who wanted to celebrate his birthday by helping others. When KTVB asked him why? He said, "he was trying to do this under the radar, but word got out about it on social media".
He only had two rules according to Dustin Colter, the Vice President of Operations and Partner at Quest Groups told KTVB,
“The first rule is you can't post about it so it's a little ironic that we're having this conversation, but I think it's important to spread the good word especially in these times, and two if you're comfortable with it, say God bless,”.
Joe "Boise Kind" should be your middle name. Major salute to you. Thanks for making a positive difference.
