This is an example of one of those stories that just makes you think “hey, the internet isn’t ALL that bad!” It is actually very much filled with some great people.
She has been deemed “America’s Great Grandma” and the internet showed up for her.
Barbara Gillespie is 72-years-old and was delivering pizza for Domino’s to help with retirement. She is a recently retired lunch lady. The man who was the recipient of the pizza, a South Carolina firefighter and his family, have now helped raise over $240,000 for her to be able to retire!
Kevin Keigher and his wife, Lacey, stepped up started this GoFundMe! Here’s what the description reads…
Hi, my name is Lacey and my husband and I are trying to fundraise for our Dominos delivery driver Barbara. Today she took a rough fall on our front porch while delivering our food. We would like to bless her by bringing by a “tip” to help her with anything she may need. She is an older woman who fell and only cared about the food she dropped. Let’s show her some kindness and take off some of this burden that our economy is causing the older generations especially!! Thank you all ❤️
