When Coty Vincent, the mother of 11-month-old twin boys, was the victim of a hit-and-run accident, she had to take her babies to the car rental company. Anyone who has ever rented a car, much less had to do it with kids in tow, knows the process can be a hassle.
But for Vincent, the experience was actually enjoyable. She was helped by John, an employee at Enterprise, who also happened to have a twin sister. He held one of Vincent’s sons while he helped her with her rental.
On July 13, Vincent posted a picture of John on her Facebook page, writing, “This is John and he works at Enterprise. He’s also a twin and his twin sister is his best friend. While he helped me with my rental due to a hit and run accident, he held one of my twin sons as I don’t have a double stroller. One of the most compassionate and caring people I’ve ever met. We need more people like John who go that extra step. Be a John. #BeAJohn“
The post has since gone viral with over 200,000 likes and 28,000 shares.
Amazing how good news travels fast too. Let's have more of it. #BeAJohn— Susan Cheney (@susanhcheney) July 18, 2016
In response to the outpouring of kindness, Enterprise bought Vincent a double stroller and offered John a gift card. He turned down the offer and instead asked Enterprise to make a donation to the Boys and Girls Club.
