The internet is sometimes a bleak place, but sometimes it uncovers stories that warm the soul.
In today’s cookie-with-a-goey-centre news, a teenage pizza shop worker travelled 225 miles to bring a dying man his favourite pizza.
Eighteen year-old Dalton Shaffer, an employee at Steve's Pizza in Michigan, went the extra mile (or 225 to be precise) to put a smile on a customer’s face.
Rich Morgan and his wife are long-time fans of Steve's Pizza and were planning a trip to their restaurant from Indianapolis, where they currently live. Heartbreakingly, due to his illness, Rich was taken into a hospice and was unable to make the trip.
But Julia’s dad David secretly contacted the restaurant to tell them the story, hoping they’d be able to send them a card or coupon. But Dalton didn’t think that this would quite cut it.
