A busy Walmart employee noticed an older man who needed some assistance in the store. She did not hesitate to delay her schedule to help the man until he found what he wanted.


When a woman went shopping with her mom and grandmother in 2017, she didn't expect to see something that would melt her heart, but she did. In a world often filled with hate and violence, she witnessed a beautiful moment of true humanity and care.

Mandy Sue Prince watched an encounter between an elderly gentleman and a Walmart employee unfold, and it gave her chills. The worker halted her job and went above and beyond to help the shopper find a pair of shoes.

In addition, the employee sat on the ground and assisted the man as he tried on various pairs. She stayed with him until they found a size that suited him perfectly. Prince applauded the employee and approached her afterward.


She thanked her for her kindness and added: "It just goes to show some people do still have love and compassion in their hearts!!" Prince also asked to take a picture of the worker but did not get her name.


Prince shared the special moment online and asked users if they recognized the considerate employee. Quickly, people identified her as the helpful Carrie Clark. Netizens sang her praises and said she always exuded kindness.


One user wrote:

"I am not surprised by this at all. Carrie Clark is a wonderful person. Even with her back issues she still got down there. I just love your heart, Carrie. Always putting someone before yourself."


Another netizen added: "Oh, it's Carrie. Such an awesome tribute. She is great. Almost all the people I worked with there are." The online community also indicated that the world needed more people like Clark.


One commenter stated that citizens sometimes spoke negatively about employees at stores like Walmart. They pointed out that the staff was happy to go above and beyond their call of duty more often than not.


In a similar act of selflessness, a Walmart employee from Douglas County, Georgia, was spotted giving his shoes to a homeless man. Myrna Kines witnessed the encounter and shared the story, which quickly went viral.

Many applauded the employee, Phil Powell, for his generosity and thanked him for showing care and kindness. He returned to work in his socks and was happy to help wherever he could.

Both Powell and Clarke restored many people's faith in humanity. They cared for strangers without expecting any gratitude and are the everyday heroes who make the world a better place.
