A worker gives shoes to a homeless man wearing boxes on his feet


A Brooklyn Center, Minnesota liquor store worker named Ta Leia Thomas, also known as Ace, is being praised for her touching act of kindness.

The moment was caught on camera: a man was rummaging through the trash before putting boxes on his feet because he had no shoes on, WCCO reported on Saturday.

When Thomas saw what was happening, she knew exactly what to do and took off her own shoes, right there at the door of Brooklyn Center Liquor.

“It wasn’t just a regular old pair of shoes. Ace, being a Minnesota Vikings fan, had on her favorite pair of purple Nike Air Jordans which she gave to the man without hesitation. It’s a true example of empathy, compassion and holiday cheer. We can all appreciate a story like this during the holiday season,” the outlet told its followers in an online post Wednesday.

“We applaud Ace for his selflessness and willingness to help those in need!” the post continued.

Thomas’ good heart guided her decision, and she said the man told her no one would ever give her such a gift.

“And I said, ‘Well, I’m not everyone.’ And he was like, ‘Thank you so much’ and I see him walk away and he walks away proudly,” she continued.

Even though it was her favorite pair of shoes, Thomas said she didn’t mind.

“I cared about him, so you know, even though he didn’t know me and I didn’t know him, I just thought it was best to give him something he might need,” he said. she told KARE 11.

Netizens praised the tender heart of the young woman, with one person writing: “Thank you for being a remarkable human being in a world so often indifferent. Your kindness is a real gift.

“It’s beautiful. I was the one without shoes. You are an amazing human,” another commented.
