GOOD NEWS: Uber driver goes on a shopping trip
As an Uber driver in Florida, Belinda Smith has had countless people sit on the backseat of her car. But when she had a new mom named Nikki as a passenger, something beautiful happened. Nikki lived in Kansas, but had to bring her baby there for special treatment of a life threatening condition. She ordered the Uber to go to a children’s clothing store, since most of their belongings were back in Kansas. On the way, her emotional story of her sick child and being alone and homesick touched Belinda. A few minutes after she dropped her off, Belinda turned her car around and went back to the store and found Nikki. She told her, “This is a day that should be fun for you. And you shouldn’t be alone. Let’s shop.” The two shopped together, and Belinda insisted on paying for it all. Nikki couldn’t help but cry for what her Uber driver did. The two are now great friends, and Belinda recently visited Nikki and her child at the hospital.
