After She Bought Coffee For A Stranger, She Received A Deeply Moving Thank You Note

Remember that feeling when you help someone without any reason and you have a deeply satisfied smile on your face? That is the moment this Ohio student must have felt when she received a heart-wrenching thank you note from a stranger for whom she bought coffee.

Mackenzie, a student bought coffee for the lady behind her as a kind gesture. It turned out that the lady was her neighbour who lived two houses away and free coffee is something that she really needed at that time as that gesture turned her day around and made her feel much better.


The note said, “The last couple of months have been a struggle… what you did for me was more than just a coffee. It was something that has turned my whole day around, put tears in my eyes and a smile on my face.”

The lady for whom Mackenzie bought a coffee had recently lost her father. Her father used to babysit her kids and after his death, things had gone haywire for the lady. She said that she rarely treats herself to Starbucks but that day her babysitter called in sick and she had to skip work. She was sad that she might have to become a stay-at-home mom for a while.

Mackenzie told The Independent, “You never really know what others are going through, and although something might seem like a small or insignificant act, it can make a big difference.”

After Mackenzie tweeted about this it went viral. Starbucks too quoted her Tweet. The lady whom she gave a coffee to tweeted about it as well:
