Online selling is a trend today. Many are going crazy especially if the online shops are on sale. With just one click, you can purchase your favorite item online and you just have to sit back, relax, and wait for the package. Today we will feature an inspiring story of a couple who are both online sellers and their hardworking delivery man. Many people online were touched by their stories.
Many places in the Philippines are still under the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). But that wouldn’t stop one delivery rider from working. He still goes around the city to deliver orders purchased by people online. But what is more heartbreaking is seeing this man ride his motorcycle with a pair of old and damaged shoes. He wraps the shoes with scotch tape so he can still use it.
Online sellers and couple Zang and Mark Wang saw this and decided to give their delivery rider a pair of new shoes. They gave him a pair of their bestseller Nike Air Max 270. This story went viral and many were inspired. Many people online also sent donations and even one gave him a sack of rice.
This hard-working delivery rider works for J&T Express, a logistics company. He often delivers online orders to the couple, Zang and Mark.
“Si kuya, araw-araw nagpi-pick-up sa amin ng mga pa-order namin online. Sobrang nakakaproud lang. Kahit sira na sapatos nya, go pa rin sa pagtatrabaho para sa pamilya. Kanina, nakita namin na nakascotchtape ung sapatos nya. Sabi ng husband ko, ‘Kuya,anong nangyare sa sapatos mo?’ Nahihiya si kuya na sinabing, ‘Bumigay po sir eh. Kaya iniscotchtape ko nlng,’” Zhang posted.
Without any hesitation, they asked the delivery rider his shoe size and gave him the best selling pair of shoes. The delivery rider was very happy with the kind gesture of our inspiring couple.
“Sana napasaya ka namin kuya. Hindi ka na mahihirapan sa butas na sapatos mo.”
“Lesson: Minsan nagrereklamo pa tayo sa kung anong meron tayo without thinking na yung iba mas nahihirapan pa kesa sayo. Na yung mga bagay na meron ka ngayon, pinapangarap palang ng iba sana sila meron din. Kaya dapat, imbes na magreklamo tayo kung anong meron, magpasalamat na lang tayo, “ Zhang posted on her Facebook account.
Two thumbs up for Zhang and Mark. I hope you guys keep on helping and inspiring more people.
