Kindly Florida A man gave away more than $13,000 to strangers he met at Waffle House, according to a series of viral tweets from a former Obama campaign official.

The man — an unnamed, white-haired elderly gentleman — was discovered by political ad maker Kevin Keith, who saw him sitting alone in a booth at a diner in Midway, Florida, attaching a stack of folded dollar bills to notes.

When asked what he did for a living, Kate said the man told him he had been handing out $1 and $5 bills to children and others since 2014.

He told Kate that he attached a note to each bill with the simple phrase “Love every body” written in big, bold letters.

The man said he prints and cuts the bills every few days to collect new batches of money to hand out.

When asked why he chose that phrase to give out to so many people, the man told Kate that it was the last words his mother said to him before she died.

“Love with all your body,” he told Kate, “she didn’t say ‘I love you,’ she said ‘love with all your body.’ So that’s what I do. I love every body.”

An unidentified man collects $1 and $5 bills into notes that say “Love Every Body” at a Waffle House in Midway, Florida.

Kevin Keith, former Obama campaign press secretary, met the man at Waffle House and wrote about him in a now-viral Twitter thread

Kate posted her tweets about the man on Saturday night and it has since been retweeted almost 7,000 times and received almost 44,000 likes.

Users flocked to the comments section to share how they were touched by the man’s story, with many simply saying, “Thank you for sharing this.”

Others shared their own experiences of the kindness of strangers.

“After my father’s death, an old family friend wrote to me: ‘Your father always helped people,'” one user commented, “he knew that sometimes they took advantage of him, but he didn’t care. He thought it was worth it because you never know when someone is really in need.”

Another noted how far a simple message from the man’s mother went.

“Thank you for taking the time to speak with this gentleman and share his story,” one person wrote, “He has no idea how many people were touched by his mother’s message…and we received no money or note. We got the love his mom wanted! What a legacy she left.”
