Stranger Dashes 20 pounds to Student for crying on phone


If you’ve been to university you’ll know that those few years are probably the best you’ll ever experience. For the majority of us every day is as mental as the last, you’ll drink to extreme, you’ll make friendships that’ll last forever and you’ll have a totally epic time along the way. However, there’s two big catches – you’ll be broke as fuck the whole time and the workload can become a real struggle. Some people have to battle with the latter more than most.
One student who knows this problem all too well is Charlotte Rose Ford. She was studying at the University of Manchester when a stranger paid her a little act of kindness that left her completely overwhelmed.
The second-year student was booking an appointment with the uni’s counselling service after she repeatedly found herself getting distracted by her “low mood” and anxiety over the quality of her work. She had been discussing her situation over the phone in the student union, explaining how it would cost her £20 to get a doctors note for mitigating circumstances.

Then when Charlotte put down the phone in tears a stranger placed something on the table that proved to her that “you’re really not on your own, the world is a lovely place.”
Charlotte revealed in her Facebook post: “Someone came up to me, put a cup of coffee in front of me and said ‘this is for you, someone sent it over’. And I found this note tucked inside the cup sleeve! Of course I pretty much burst into tears all over again before I’d even opened it (because I’m like that), and then I was so overwhelmed by it!”
This was the letter:

The stranger’s identity is still a mystery but Charlotte is obviously extremely appreciative of their warm gesture. And she’s not the only one who thinks the anonymous individual is a legend; these users took to the social media site to express their praise:

It just goes to show that a little act of kindness can go an awful long way ladies and gents. Spread the love.
