Amanda Fessler recently found herself having an extremely bad day. She had just attended her aunt’s funeral when she had to go to the hospital to pick up her daughter, who just had brain surgery.
Just when it seemed like life could not get any worse, Amanda’s car broke down and started smoking in the middle of the highway. She called a tow truck to come and help her, and the truck got her car off the road before dropping her off at a nearby hotel.
The next morning, Amanda was stunned when a stranger named Donta Thompson pulled over and offered to help fix her car.
What Amanda did not know is that Donta has a long history of helping people. Amanda took to social media to talk about what he did for her:
“In the midst of all the craziness on Monday, with my Aunt’s funeral, my daughter being discharged from A I DuPont hospital, the car breaking down (in between 3 lanes of traffic coming off of 95 South onto RT 1 to my left and merging traffic to my right), then getting towed to a hotel for the night in Christiana, we had angel looking out for us.
This man (Donta) recognized our distress in the morning while trying to replace the car’s serpentine belt. He not only offered his tools, he came in and saved the day. Not many people would have been so generous and rushed to the aid to help others. His assistance came at a real time of need.”
Amanda’s fiancé had to get an Uber twice to get the serpentine belt that was needed to fix the car, as he was given the wrong part the first time. Though he finally got the right part, he was struggling to get it installed in the car. That’s when Donta, the chief engineer at the Hampton Inn & Suites where Amanda was staying, offered his assistance.
“Our check out time was growing near and my daughter desperately needed to get home to recover from her brain surgery,” Amanda continued. “I could not thank him enough for all that he did. Please help me show him some love by sharing this post in hopes that it finds him. He was definitely our angel that day.”
Donta went so far as to help Amanda get a late check-out that day so that he would have time to fix her car and she could relax. Amanda was shocked when he didn’t charge her and wanted nothing in return for his good deed!
Though Amanda was incredibly grateful to him for his kindness, Donta has stayed totally humble about it.
“I do it all the time. I try to help,” he said.
God bless this man for showing everyone that there is still good in the world! We need more people like him!
