Man's Grocery Store Encounter With Crying Mother Quickly Goes Viral (Photo)


A South Florida man helped a mother who, while shopping at Wal-Mart, realized she was unable to afford dinner for her daughter.

Bear Taliferro, Jr. wrote about the incident on his Facebook page, explaining that he stopped by a Wal-Mart on Nov. 4 on his way home from two 14-hour shifts to buy food for dinner.

“As I was checking out a woman started crying in the next checkout line,” he wrote.

“Her daughter asked her what's wrong and she said we can't afford to eat tonight. A person behind her gave her a couple dollars and she bought her daughter a Kids Cuisine tv dinner.”

Taliferro, who in another Facebook post detailed his own struggles living in his car for a year, said he felt compelled to intervene.

He told the mother to grab what she wanted and he would pay for it. “I'm not posting this for likes, I'm simply saying GOD puts you where he needs you to be WHEN he needs you to be there,” he wrote.

Taliferro’s post quickly went viral, garnering more than 725,000 likes and 82,000 shares on Facebook within a week.
