When the elderly guy who was delivering her food was shown on video taken by her doorbell, everything began to unravel. In spite of the fact that it was obvious he was struggling, he was successful in completing the assignment. Anabelle’s heart was shattered.
“It made me very unhappy,” Anabelle said. “I knew that if it were my grandfather, I wouldn’t want to watch my grandpa working,” the person says. She helped him out by leaving a $30 tip on an order that was just $21, but that was only the beginning of her generosity toward him.
After a TikTok that Anabelle had produced of the delivery went viral, she became resolute in her goal to capitalize on the visibility she had received in order to obtain money for the unknown guy. However, she had to search for him first.
She made an effort to contact DoorDash in order to get more information about him, however, since the company is not permitted to provide any personal information on its delivery drivers, they were had to initially approach him in order to get the information, but he never got back about it.
Anabelle kept up with her TikTok account despite this, and before she knew it, her very first video had collected an astounding 12 million views! However, she wanted one of the delivery driver’s kids to find it more than anybody else in order to fulfill her purpose.
Anabelle said, “His son reached out to us and mentioned that his father is a very private individual. He has been an employee his whole life and has persevered through a great deal of adversity.
I sent his son with my contact information, and I’m now waiting for Kerry to give me a call so that we can schedule a meeting and perhaps assist this guy with retiring!” Kerry, who is 71 years old, has never been given the opportunity to ease off on his pace.
Since his wife passed away in 2011, he is the only provider for their two sons. His income is uncertain due to the fact that he also works as a security guard and as a driver for DoorDash, and recent health issues have made things even more challenging for him.
Anabelle shared Kerry’s story on GoFundMe, where it slowly but surely gathered popularity among a significant number of people who were moved by Kerry’s predicament and wanted to help.
The story that Kerry told was promptly picked up by news outlets located all around the globe. And now, a little over a month and a half later, they’ve raised over $70,000!
Since the beginning of the fundraising effort, Anabelle and Kerry have had the chance to converse in person over the course of a meal. She found out that he is “funny and charming,” as well as the fact that the property she now resides in was once owned by a babysitter to whom Kerry had taken his children many years before.
“I don’t even know where to start expressing how grateful I am for the outpouring of love from people all around the globe! This is beyond my comprehension and goes far beyond anything I could have ever imagined!
This is an event that will change Kerry for the rest of her life, and it’s all because to you!!!”
