She had to share the story of his kindness with others on social media, to uplift and inspire them.

Matthew was working his job as a cashier when a homeless man entered the Burger King with just 50 cents.
He explained to Matthew that he was hungry and he wanted whatever the fifty cents would buy. In response, Matthew asked the man what he would order if money was no obstacle.
The man couldn’t even imagine what he would have, and answered that he would be thrilled to get anything that would eliminate his hunger.
So, Matthew picked up his own debit card, and ordered the man a hearty and satisfying meal. Once it was ready, he handed the food over to his new friend, and told him to enjoy.
