Random act of kindness: Man wants to pay it forward
Dad: 'I think it is important for me to reach out to everybody else'
After eating dinner at Leo's Coney Island Tuesday night Joel Zeidman and his 8-year-old son Aidan headed to their car. When they got in their car they noticed an envelope on the windshield.
Joel found a gift and a note that said: "Please accept this small gift as a way to honor the memory of a brave little boy named Pierce. today's gift is part of a commitment to make the world a nicer place and happier by practicing random acts of kindness."
The small gift was a $10 dollar Target gift card.
Joel said, "While you may buy anything you would like with this gift perhaps using it for something that makes you or someone else."
Joel wants to know who is behind this random act of kindness. "When I initially got this, i looked around and didn't see any envelopes on any other cars. So maybe they were just waiting for the right people."
He wonders who is Pierce? Joel wants to know his story.
"Something probably happened to him, probably not to good. And his parents or guardians want to get his name out to turn something tragic into something positive.
Joel says he is not going to keep the gift card, he is going to pay it forward in honor of Pierce. "It is important because someone reached out to me, I think it is important for me to reach out to everybody else."
