Often people say that the world would be a better place if we all just did a little bit to help others in our day to day lives. All it takes is one little positive action to have a ripple effect of positivity. One person on Twitter witnessed one of those actions and shared it with the world.

In the ultimate show of kindness, a jogger in New York City gave a homeless man his shoes and ran home barefoot.

A Twitter user named Antonella shared a video that she took near the World Trade Center in Manhattan on August 18. The video shows a man walking past another man sitting by the curb. Antonella explains that she saw the first man give his shoes to the other. Along with the video, she tweeted:

“It was 9am in the WTC area, I watched as a jogger took off his sneakers, gave them to a homeless man, & walked the NYC streets barefoot. ‘Our character is what we do when we think nobody is looking.'”

Antonella told The NY Post that she was in a Uber that was stopped at a red light when she witnessed the charitable act.
“I watched the jogger talk to the homeless man and then start to take off his shoe, then his sock,” Antonella said. “After, he took off both shoes and socks, he left them with the man and started to walk away barefoot.”

Journalist Kemberly Richardson later met the man who received the shoes and took a photo with him.

Along with the photo, Richardson wrote about the man who’s name is Joe Arroyo. She said, “He’s 30 & homeless, seen in a #video that’s gone #viral of a jogger, taking off his running shoes & giving them to him. Those are the shoes.”

Arroyo told Eyewitness News:

“I was sitting here with a sign that I’m homeless and hungry, and my shoes, that they’re broken so I took them off to see if somebody would help me with some money, to raise money to buy a new pair. I never thought somebody would come out and take their shoes off and just give them to me.”

It’s heartwarming to see a simple act of kindness have such a positive effect on someone’s life, and hopefully inspire others to do the same.
