Stranger Takes Out Cash So Homeless Woman Can Buy Ticket Home

Published

“Everyone can dig deep, or do something small, to help someone out.”

A humble man is being praised for his spontaneous gesture to help uplift a homeless woman going through a difficult time.

In a viral video of the encounter, the man, who’s been identified as Daniel Roose, can be seen withdrawing money from an ATM in Perth, Australia, and handing it to the woman, whose name is Jess. Roose gave her the money so she could buy a plane ticket to see her family in New Zealand, according to Siham Carollisen, the person who filmed the video.

Carollisen is one of the people behind Brothers and Sisters Perth, a group that helps local homeless people. The group recently shared her footage of the good deed on Facebook.

“We need more people like you in this world, mate,” Carollisen tells Roose in the video.

“I’m just a simple person,” Roose says as he walks away.

“All I had to do is walk to a teller machine and back. … Everyone can dig deep, or do something small, to help someone out,” Roose told local outlet WAtoday of his act of kindness, which has gone viral across social media.

Roose had spotted Jess from across the street and noticed that many people were passing the woman and others didn’t even look at her, he told New Zealand TV show “Seven Sharp.”

Roose ended up listening to her story and felt compelled to take action. He explained that it wasn’t his place to make assumptions about Jess’ life and wanted to approach her from a place of understanding.

“Everyone has bad demons or bad experiences in life, and people just judge and look from afar, they never really try to get to know the person,” Roose told news network Perth Now. “A lot of people say homeless people are lazy or this and that but I just don’t think people know what they wake up to everyday.”

Jess had been speaking with Carollisen just before the sweet interaction with Roose went down, according to Perth Now. Carollisen learned that the homeless woman had been estranged from her family for a while, but that she’d recently reconnected with them and was hoping to collect enough money to get back to New Zealand.

Jess isn’t a resident of Australia, according to a Facebook post by Brothers and Sisters Perth, and because of that, she’s not eligible for “any income support.”

While it’s not confirmed as to how the woman ultimately used the money, Roose just hopes the funds helped make a difference in her life.

“I wish her all the best, I gave her the money, she does what she needs to do with it and I hope she’s doing the right thing,” he told Seven Sharp.

The Traditional African Man and Romance

Published

on

Romance in marriage is like the gentle breeze that fans the embers of a camplight fire bringing tiny sparks of flames here and there. The west has provided it’s version of romance and this wave has swept across other parts of the world and of course in Africa. 

We see a handful of Millenials and the Gen Z’ers play out romance sequences that could have been straight out of a Mills and Boons story BUT… If we are totally honest with ourselves, these do not represent the whole rather they are a very small cross-section making us ask the question “How do the rest express themselves”. We grew up in Africa seeing our parents play out a script on romance that was lack-lustre and bland. This was picked up by many and it has become their default mode when the camera’s aren’t flicking, friends aren’t watching or it’s not for social media.

Below is an excerpt i stumbled upon and had to include it into my post because it perfectly explained the default state of romance in Africa.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Many marriages are just for sleeping and waking up, raising kids and ageing together till death comes. This is not right. Marriage must be enjoyable and romantic.
1.Many couples hardly kiss and they only hug each other when they receive good news.
2. The husband only puts food in his wife’s mouth only when she is terminally ill and cant feed herself.
3. If you see a man opening car door for his wife means the door is faulty.
4. The only thing that makes an african man touch his wife’s neck is when she complains of fever. He wont touch it again till the next fever.
5.The only time he can carry his wife on his arms is when she is in labour.
6. If you see them seated outside at night, dont think they are romantic. They are only waiting for the smell of insecticide to vanish.
7.Many wives buy gifts for their husbands only when they are hospitalized.
8.The only time they race together is when there is danger and everyone is running.
9.The only time they go for evening stroll is when they want to go and lay a complain to the parents of the person that beat their child or got their daughter pregnant.
10. The only time they bath together is when both are late for work.
11. The only time a wife looks closely to her husband’s eyes is when he complains of dirt in his eyes.
Unfortunately, Africans feel that any romantic man is being controlled by his wife. They will begin to spread bad rumours. Let us just change today for the better. Let us learn to love one another and enjoy the few days we have on earth together.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
On a closing note, i believe things would play out better for couples if men could become a bit more humane, women, drop a bit of the ultra-feminism and let’s enjoy ourselves as couples (ie married couples).
