In 2012, Samuel Nzube left his home in Nigeria to study finance and economics at Algoma University in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. In addition to his studies, he's been working part-time at the local Little Caesar's pizza. Money and time are both tight, so he hasn't been home to see his family in five years.
Enter his Little Caesar's co-workers. For seven months, the staff secretly pooled their delivery tip money. They saved up enough to purchase Samuel's airfare home. When presented with the gift, Samuel was speechless, overwhelmed by their kindness.
Samuel was quick to thank his co-workers publicly. He added that their boss supported the idea, and offered to pay for any shortfall himself.
Now he'll head home to visit loved ones and enjoy his mom's home-cooking, courtesy of generous friends in the US.
