An “acts of kindness” card traveled across states to bless a 30-year-old mother who was out to eat with her two young children.
Liana Arruda had taken her kids to dinner at Home Plate Bay Street Grill in Taunton, MA, after a trick-or-treat event at Taunton High School.
Liana ordered food for her and the children, as well as some to take home for a family member, which brought the check to at least $80.
But when she went to pay, the waitress told her that the women who had sat next to her had already paid for the meal.
“I almost wanted to cry because it was just really selfless and thoughtful,” she told the Taunton Gazette. “I was with two young kids, so they can get a little crazy and overwhelming.”
Before she left, the mystery woman handed the waitress a card and asked her to pass it on to Liana.
The card was created to honor the life of Trevor Paul Thomas, a stand out athlete who played baseball in Maryland. He passed away in a motorcycle accident in 2019 at just 21 years old.
The card reads: “If you receive this card, then you must be a recipient of a random act of kindness. Please consider making a post to share your experience. In order for the Thomas family to see it, the post will have to be public, and please use #liveliketrev23.”
Somehow, it traveled over 500 miles and landed in Taunton.
Liana said she’s not rushing to give the card away again. She said she’s looking for the right moment to help someone in need.
