She bought 105 packets from them, and 75 is free for those in need!
This period definitely hasn’t been easy on our hawkers, especially those who are older in age.
Netizen Sammi Siek shared her story on how she ended up buying 105 packets of chicken rice, to “Pay It Forward”. She wrote that these hawkers were having difficulty sustaining in this difficult period.
According to Lianhe Wanbao, a man ordered 20 packets of chicken rice from them on credit, and didn’t pay for it in the end.
But they decided to let it go, as they empathised that maybe the man has his own difficulties.
After hearing their story, Sammi decided to purchase 105 packets from them, and after deducting 20 packets, 75 would be left for the public. She also prompted the public to show some support for these kind hawkers!
This is an incredible example of Paying It Forward, and Sammi is doing it right. There are many other hawkers and people out there in need during these difficult times, so if we can, let’s try our best to help and support whoever needs our kindness!
