We need more people like this in the world

My hubby got this through work. An awesome RAK.

What a wonderful thing for that bus driver to do!

I agree, if there were more people like that in the world, it would be a far better place

Having a bus driver as a hubby I was moved by this but also chuckled at the idea of him driving the rest of the shift with no shoes! Probably not the easiest thing to do.

Also, Winnipeg can be on the cool side this time of year.

These facts make the deed all the richer!

I saw on the news that the bus driver was to be on an American Talk Show on Friday morning but didn't catch which one. The clip I did see showed him in his bus and being very humble about what he did.

He just walked up to the man, asked if he had any shoes, and when the man said "no", he took his off, handed them over and said "here have mine". He did do the rest of the route in sock feet and was surprised that "such a fuss is being made of this"
