Doughnut Man Delivers More Than Breakfast
87-year-old veteran pays it forward, sparking a chain of kindness
87-year-old Norm Weise has a lot of titles. He's a husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, and Korean War veteran. To me, he's PopPop, the world's best grandfather. He's the kind of man who is always there when you need him. The man who never misses a birthday or an anniversary. The man who seems to have the best advice know matter the situation.
My family has always known just how kind, compassionate, hard-working, and wonderful PopPop is and now the staff at a nursing home in Pittsburgh's South Hills knows. PopPop's wife, Carole, has been in Baldwin Health Center for about 4 years. It didn't take long for him to realize that she was getting great care. He wanted a way to say thank you and that is how his new title of "Doughnut Man" came to be.
PopPop's story has started to spread and although he never expected it, every once in a while family, friends, and even strangers will pick up the tab for his doughnuts. People have told him they want to pay it forward, just like him. He never imagined the simple act of buying baked goods would spark a chain of kindness.
Don't be afraid to follow PopPop's lead and make a difference. I know I won't. Small acts of kindness can truly change the world. Sign up and share your positive stories on Sparkt, we love to hear them!
