Jack, an Atlanta driver, hadn’t seen his mother in over a year. Due to financial constraints, he couldn’t afford a plane ticket home for the holidays. He disclosed his dilemma during a heart-to-heart with his passenger, Valerie.
Valerie, a mother herself, knew she had to do something. She decided to give her distraught Lyft driver a standby boarding pass to fly home. (Did you just get goosebumps, too?)
Jack admitted it was the sweetest thing a stranger had ever done for him. He promptly planned a surprise visit home shortly after Christmas. His mother and younger brother were able to enjoy a long-awaited family reunion with Jack, all thanks to the kindness of a Lyft passenger.
