One girl’s viral Facebook post has folks brightening after she shared an unattributable couple’s gesture of kindness toward a casualty of the devastating floods in Louisiana.

In the post shared by Facebook page Adore What Issues, Allison LaCombe Welch describes a landscape that happened in Marksville in a Walmart. Welch was third in line behind an old girl and a middle aged couple in front of Welch.

“Nicely I found the girl checking out had nearly every essential thing you could want: shampoo, conditioner, tooth paste, tooth brush, hair brush, several pairs of shoes, some clothing, fundamental make up things…;.,” wrote Welch.

She describes not believing of the aged girl’s things in her shopping cart, but found the total was over $350. What occurred Welch reached greatly.

“The guy before me asked her ‘Are you sending flooding casualties this items?’ And the girl said, ‘Truly sir, I will be a flood casualty, I didn’t have time to catch my bag and lost everything I own. There’s water up to my roof. I’m remaining here with my daughter until I could figure outside things.’”

According to Welch, without reluctance, the guy given his credit card to the cashier to pay for whole purchase is ’sed by the girl. There were tears.

“ his wife wept, She wept, and then I wept, Welch was written by ”. It was touching to see someone be so selfless, particularly in this! Pay it forwards.”

Out of disaster, there’s constantly hope.

Marksville received 12.6 inches of rain in a 24 hour interval over the weekend, only one town in the area impacted by the flood that’s so far claimed 11 lives.
