Some people may be able to do incredible things to help others or even draw a smile on their lips. Altruism is a quality that has always been valued in all societies throughout the history of humanity. Nowadays, it is more indispensable than ever since it is becoming more and more rare, or in other words, less and less visible. Modern consumer society based on profit, self-interest and materialism. It is because of this that helping or giving selflessly has become quite incredible, when it is simply a virtue of a human and noble spirit. The story of this waitress attests.

The effect of sincere altruism on individuals

Between 1957 and 2008, a study was conducted in the US state of Wisconsin to discover whether sincere altruism had, as some people already thought, effects on longevity.

The study was conducted on 10,317 people. In 2004, an inquiry was made to the interested parties. Of the 2384 non-volunteers, 4.3% died in the 4 years following the survey (that is, between 2004 and 2008). While altruistic volunteers had a mortality rate of only 1.6% for the same period! The third category of individuals engaged in volunteering for personal reasons had a rate almost similar to that of the first category, namely 4%!

According to Sara Konrath, one of the authors of the study, this rather strange report could be explained quite rationally by the simple fact that a helping and selfless giving person leads a more peaceful life than another. making an effort for a particular financial gain or for some personal reason because of the absence of the stress factor, which is why, according to her, there was really no difference between those who did not volunteer and those who did not. did but for personal reasons!

The story of two very dedicated firefighters

Tim Young and Paul Hullings are two firefighters who have made the commitment to do their work with heart and passion.

They had just worked hard for 12 hours to extinguish a fire. So, being completely exhausted, they decided to go to the local cafe around 6 am to have the cup of coffee the most full that can serve them!


The waitress that day was Liz Woodward, who had just heard the two firefighters talk about the fierce battle they had fought against the flames. Finally, when Tim and Paul went to pay for their breakfast, they were surprised to see that instead of having the bill, they had a message in their hands:

"Your breakfast is now on my account. I thank you for everything you do running around to save people and serve them. You are really brave and strong ... Thank you for being so amazing every day! Motivated by fire and led by bravery! You are a real example to follow. Stay that way. "

They then warmly thanked the nice waitress for her particularly touching act on Facebook. Tim pointed to the facts: "As a result of this incredibly altruistic and kind act, I urge my friends to take a walk and support the establishment (where she works), and if Liz is your waitress, give him a tip! "

An act that has, against all odds, caused a "snowball effect"
But the story does not end there. Firefighters learned that Liz's father, Steve, had been quadriplegic and paralyzed for five years. Liz had also set up a donation page to finance a wheelchair-accessible vehicle so that she could take her father on family trips or outings.

Tim, without thinking, urged people on Facebook to make a donation on Liz's page: "It turns out that the young woman who gave us a meal is the one who needs the most help ..."

In just a few days, she was able to raise more than $ 70,000, far more than the $ 17,000 needed to purchase a wheelchair accessible van.

If this story bears witness to one thing, it is the power that sincerity and altruism can have on people. So now, if you hear someone say that "all good that you do, God will reward you", know that it is true!
