The man with the TikTok username isaiahgarza posted the video on January 10, 2022. The video started with him asking the homeless lady what he could do to make her smile. She replied:

"I am really hungry right now."

The homeless lady also shared that there were times when she hadn't eaten anything for 2-3 days. She looked at the man with a weak smile on her face and said, "I really am starving right now!"

The man felt bad for the woman, so he quickly grabbed some groceries and flowers. He also bought her favorite chicken tacos, and she was very excited to have them. 

A woman asked, "Has someone ever turned you away cause they feel like they didn't deserve kindness??"

After giving her the tacos, the man said, "I got you $200!" The homeless woman turned around and said she didn't want to look at the money. It was an unbelievable moment for her.

He gave her a bag of groceries and a bouquet of beautiful flowers. The look on the woman's face was priceless. She wasn't expecting a stranger to treat her this way. "Thank you! I really didn't have any groceries," she said while her eyes filled up with tears.
