Stranger Overhears Student Talking About Money Problems, Leaves Her Cash

Ella Johannessen received a hundred pounds from a stranger.

In a heartwarming incident, a cash-strapped student got a helping hand from a kind-hearted stranger who overheard her talking about her financial worries on a train. The student fell asleep on a train after a phone conversation with her mother about losing 35 pounds and woke up to find out that someone had left her almost thrice the amount. Ella Johannessen shared her story in a Facebook post that has gone viral with over 6,000 shares. "I was rather stressed and upset over my financial situation... I spoke to her about how little money I had, how worried I was about my finances and I got upset," she writes in her post on January 27.

When the cash-strapped student from UK woke up after her nap on the train from London to Leeds, she found a napkin on her lap. Under the napkin was 100 pounds or approximately Rs 9000.

"I started to cry - this is because I was incredibly thankful for your kindness to someone you don't even know."

According to the BBC, the 23-year-old got into debt during her final year of study after giving up her part-time job to concentrate on her course. The amount she received from a complete stranger will stop her from going over her overdraft limit.

"My god bless the person that did this for you may they receive good karma back," writes one person in the comments section. "Amazing - how generous of the mystery good Samaritan. Hope you're feeling better," says another.
