While social media is notorious for spreading hate, some good-natured netizens — like Princess Almazan — can change our perspective on the power of the Internet.
Last May 3, the girl featured a delivery guy from Jollibee on a particular Facebook post, which would soon go viral. According to her, the rider had to stop in the middle of driving after feeling lightheaded from the scorching heat. Thankfully, she happened to be there to help by giving him some water.
Along with her status were four photos of the man stretched out on a concrete slab.

Gathering over 32,000 reactions, 25,000 shares, and 2,000 likes as of press time, it didn’t take long before the viral post has reached said delivery guy himself.
A mere day after the incident, the Jollibee guy, later identified as Beejohn Espejo, went back to the netizen to extend his gratitude with spaghetti and burger. As simple as the act was, it didn’t fail to bring a smile to Princess.
To remember this faith-restoring moment, the two posed for a photo op.
