DEARBORN — A small gesture is making big waves on Facebook after Krista Carone told about her son Adam Houssami receiving $20 from their postal carrier July 14.

The week prior, Houssami decided he wanted to set up a Kool-Aid stand outside his house on a warm summer day.

When asked by Houssami if the postal carrier wanted Kool-Aid he said “I don’t have any money,” but was still offered a cup.

When Carone went to check the mail she found a letter from the carrier which she posted on Facebook, saying, “Today the mail man put this in our mail this seriously brought tears to my eyes. What a kind thing to do!!”

The letter read, “Remember last week you were selling Kool-Aid on a hot day? I didn’t have any money but you offered me Kool-Aid anyways. Thanks Man! I was really thirsty. Good things happen to good people like you. Stay cool dude.”

The post had received over 700 likes by press time.
