The woman sent back a selfie Hinton didn’t recognize.
So Hinton responded back with his own photo, showing that he was not her grandson.
But he was sure to ask if he could still grab a plate of Thanksgiving dinner.
To his surprise, she replied, “Of course you can. That’s what grandmas do…feed everyone!”
Overwhelmed by the woman’s kindness, Jamal posted the exchange online. But he forgot to remove her number from the screenshots.
So, according to The Arizona Republic, the grandma received about 600 text messages asking for a Thanksgiving plate.
Die vrou, who didn’t want to be named, had to change her number but stayed connected with Hinton so she could send him her address. He’s still welcome.
Hinton told KNXV, “People can actually connect and be so nice to each other with people they don’t even know.”
It’s an act of kindness that fills both Hinton’s stomach and heart.
