This story has all the elements I’m looking for. Pizza, TikTok, and a great heartwarming ending.
An 89-year-old guy in Utah named Derlin Newey was living alone and couldn’t pay his bills. In order to make some money to live on he’s been delivering pizzas for Papa John’s. But this one couple that he delivers to didn’t like him working so much and wanted to help him out. So they asked their 60,000+ TikTok followers to donate 50 cents each so they could hey Derlin pay his bills and not have to work delivering pizza. Once they hit their goal they surprised him with a $12,000 tip!
