Good Samaritan Gives Homeless Person His Boots

A good samaritan was unknowingly photographed giving his boots to a person in need at a gas station in Clayton, Delaware.

John Berl III, the owner of Uncle John's BBQ Stand captured the photos of Jay'Juan Jones doing a good deed and posted them on his Facebook page to spread the kindness he witnessed.

"I was just like, 'Did my man just give him the shoes off of his feet?' And he starts walking over in his socks," Berl recalled.

The social media post went viral and Berl received a ton of messages and phone calls.

"I had Facebook messages, I had text messages, I had phone calls," said Jones of Wilmington.
Jones said he saw a man who was barefoot on a cold morning and knew he needed to help.

Jones, 24, says he doesn't have a lot, but always feels compelled to help others who are less fortunate because of his upbringing.

"I'm not in the best position myself, but if I can help, I can help, I don't mind. Helping people makes me happy," Jones explained.

Jones works the overnight shift at the Target distribution center in Logan Township, New Jersey, and says he was taught growing up to always be kind to others.

"My mom always used to say, 'be grateful for what you have because you don't have to have anything,'" Jones said.
Jones continued, "My mentor and my coach Kerry Galloway, he always told me just help somebody. If you can help one person, you never know, that person can take that blessing and help someone else."

Berl was certainly impressed by Jones' altruism because it's rare to see a moment like that. .

"I just wanted to thank him, seriously, that was the nicest thing I've ever seen anybody do," Berl added.

Jones hopes that everyone shows compassion when they have the chance to help someone in need.

"You can hold the door for somebody. That can make you feel good, you never know- somebody could be having a bad day. You could make somebody's day. People have made my day and honestly never knew it," Jones said.
"It was an amazing, selfless gesture, that if anybody could learn something from anybody in this world, it's this guy right here. Kindness wins, man," Berl said.
