A homeless veteran asking for pocket change was so surprised to be given much more, he broke down in tears.

Max Zahir had stopped to fill his gas tank on his way to work in Yucaipa, California, when the vet approached him, saying he was hungry and hadn’t eaten in a day.

Inspired with compassion, Zahir told the homeless man to meet him every day at four o’clock, and he’d buy or bring him food.

As Robert was getting out of the car, he started to cry.

“Nobody’s showed me this much kindness in a while,” the homeless man said.

Zahir hugged his new friend–but later decided to do even more.

Since that November encounter, Zahir has given Robert a job at one of his restaurants, found him a place to live, and has launched a GoFundMe campaign that’s raised more than $17,700 in the first five days to help other homeless veterans.
