Watch What This Delivery Guy Did That's Getting Him Praise From All Over

He went above and beyond to protect a young girl on his delivery route. What she and her mom said when they finally got to meet him.

For Justin Bradshaw, his FedEx delivery to Carrie Blasi's house in Boca Raton, FL was routine except for one thing. He noticed a sign on the door, indicating that someone inside the house had an autoimmune disorder. What he did next was anything but routine: he wiped down the box with sanitzer, an act caught on the family's porch cam:

Bradshaw also wrote a note on the top of the box explaining that he saw the sign and cleaned the box, which contained supplies for Carrie Blasi's daughter Emma, who has Type 1 diabetes. Blasi was so grateful, she posted her praise to her Twitter page.

The tweet went viral, with tons of complements and thumbs up for Bradshaw, who told WPTV it was just the right thing to do.

"I feel like we should all at least do something to help better this situation right now."

Bradshaw said the first thing he thought of when he saw the sign was his own baby daughter Nova, who was a micropreemie. Nova was born at 28 weeks, weighing just a little under 2 pounds, and also at high risk.

WPTV was able to engineer a social-distancing-correct meeting between the Blasi and Bradshaw families on Zoom. "To me you went above and beyond," Carrie Blasi told Bradshaw, who sat on his couch with wife Yasmin and little Nova. "From my family's heart we thank you so much," she told Bradshaw. 11-year old Emma chimed in: "I really appreciate what you did for us."

At the end of the call Carrie Blasi told Bradshaw she'd like to hug him and his wife, and both familes reached out toward the cameras in a "virtual" hug.

Carrie Blasi has started using the hashtag #belikejustin. She said when her family saw what Bradshaw did, they took it as a sign that people still care about helping others. "It gives me hope for the future, and we will all be OK."

How can you start something good?

Good for Justin Bradshaw and his act of kindness toward the Blasi family. It goes to show that when you think of others as you go through your day, you can really make a difference. Even the most simple act can make a big difference, so be looking for your chance to #belikejustin!
