It is quite rare when we come across an incident that touches our hearts with love. There are some acts of kindness that may not be a big deal for other people but may mean a lot to the recipient. From helping out people in need to doing things for strangers, these incidents win our hearts right away when we come across them. Apparently, we have come across a similar incident on the social media where a college student filled our hearts with joy.

In an interesting turn of events, the 19-year-old college student named Machenzie Mauller from Ohio, USA, is winning the attention of the netizens for her act of kindness. During one of her usual trips to the Starbucks coffee shop, something beautiful happened to her after she came across a stranger and decided to pay for her coffee.



Surprisingly, as a part of ‘pay it forward’ initiative in the Starbucks chain, the college student paid for the coffee for a woman who was sitting behind her. While this may just be a routine visit to the Starbucks for Machenzie, it was one of the best things that ever happened to the lady whose coffee she paid for.

The lady named Nicole Clawson was so moved by the sweet act of the college student, she surprised her with a hand-written letter in which she opened up about how she was going through a difficult time and also how Mauller made her so emotional. The college teen immediately posted the letter on her Twitter account.



Few lines of the letter read,

“Thank you for the coffee! I rarely go to Starbucks and treat myself, but the last couple of months have been a bit of a struggle. My father just passed away and he was also my babysitter. My family and my children have had a really hard time. This morning my babysitter called off sick and I had to take the day off work. I decided to buy my kids breakfast and get myself a coffee with total guilt because I am going to become a stay-at-home mom for a while.”

Take a look at her letter in this tweet by the college student:





Surprisingly, the lady was able to find her Santa who was apparently, living in her neighborhood. Take a look at the reply that the stranger posted for the college student’s tweet:





The college student even offered to babysit the lady’s kids!
