A Walmart worker, Nola, has a reason to smile again after receiving over $100,000 (N44.3 million) from kind-hearted people.
In a viral TikTok video, the older woman was seen sitting alone in the Walmart break room, and this attracted empathy from fans.
TikToker Dbon973_ shared the heartbreaking video on the app with the caption:
“Life shouldn’t be this hard.”
The video quickly went viral and a GoFundMe account was created for the woman to receive donations from well-meaning people. In 24 hours, it had raised over $100,000.
Dbon973_ subsequently posted a heartwarming video of himself on November 5 meeting up with Nola to transfer the account over to her shortly after.
“They saw that you’re a very hard worker, obviously. We are all super proud of you, and we wanted to offer you the $110,000 that has been raised for you”, he told the woman.
However, reacting to the video, some people faulted the woman as they claimed her reaction wasn’t satisfying.
Social media reactions
“Bruh hopefully somebody with a good company can give this dude a good paying job, if Walmart did terminate him for this gesture.”
“The older generation has a completely different mindset when it comes to finances. I don’t think her reaction was off, it was genuine. Amazing.”
“She didn’t understand exactly what was happening, my grandma would be the same. Good for you Nola and I’m so happy you did this for her.”
“Idk but this just wasn’t what I was expecting. You did something so sweet and amazing, you’re an Angel, but the reaction was definitely not it.”
“Something didn’t sit right with me. That man did something amazing and I don’t feel it was recieved well.”
