Jennifer Vasilakos was at an intersection trying to raise $20,000 for a stem cell procedure she needs to help save her life because she suffers from kidney failure and does not qualify for a transplant. When a man stopped to ask her for directons, she did her best to guide him and gave him a pamphlet about her plight.
It turned out the man was Ty Warner the creator of Beanie Babies. He read the pamphlet and returned later telling her that she could stop trying to raise money because he would pay the $20,000 she needed for the procedure. He kept his promise.
I LOVE this story!
