Stranger On A Train Pays Distraught Woman’s Electric Bill Over The Phone
January 12, 2018
An act of kindness by a stranger on a train has spurred a young woman to recount his goodwill on social media and the Israeli public has responded with utter joy.
According to a Facebook post by Daniel Danino, a woman on the train was in tears begging the Israel Electric Company to be considerate about her family’s circumstances and reconnect their electricity despite an outstanding debt of nearly $500.
A man sitting nearby overheard the distraught young woman pleading with the electric company and not only offered to pay the bill, but gave the electric company his credit-card information over the phone right there on the train.
“Friends, meet the angel, Ofir Itzhak, the man without Facebook but with the greatest soul I’ve ever met,” Danino wrote with photos she took of him.
“Today I suddenly hear a conversation of a young female soldier like me who is on the salary of single-parent soldiers. They cut off the electricity and she cries hysterically, and suddenly an angel comes from nowhere,” Danino continued.
“I get off the train with hope and faith in people. There are still those who do things for others without expecting anything in return. I was left with my mouth hanging open, speechless, and full of a sense of pride in being a part of this nation that galvanizes to help others during times of distress. Friends, share this post, so that it reaches people who know this amazing guy so they can be filled with pride as well.”
