Mom Rents A Redbox, Discovers A Sweet Surprise From A Stranger

Life can be painfully predictable. With so much going on in the world right now, it’s refreshing to hear an upbeat story that will get you right in the feels – something that makes everything we deal on a daily basis with worth it.

Upon opening a copy of Deepwater Horizon rented from her local Redbox, one fortunate woman found 5 folded $20 dollar bills inside, along with a note from a kind stranger.

The woman’s daughter Liz revealed the story on Twitter and it quickly went viral.

Here is what the note said:

Hello!

My name is Marcos. Every month I take $100.00 that I would normally spend on myself and give it away to a stranger. This month I decided to change it up and put it in a Redbox DVD. You are the first giveaway of 2017! I just ask that you put the money to good use. If you don’t need it, give it away. If you need it, keep it.

Have a great day!

-Marcos

So far, over 30,000 people have shared Liz’s tweet and 95,000 (and counting) have liked it so far.

Marcos, the Internet loves you. 👏
