If you’ve been ever been to New York then you know the bodega is where the community comes together. It’s the corner store. You’ll see kids, the elderly, the rich, the poor, and everyone in between. So when I heard there was a cashier at a Bronx bodega giving away food to customers, I was only a little surprised by it.
Ahmed Alwan started asking customers really simple math equations, like basic multiplication, and if they answered correctly they were able to grab anything they want within five seconds and keep it. That’s pretty dope. Something like that could change someone’s day. Imagine all of the times you barely had changed scraped together for a snack and you were stressed. Now imagine that snack, and more, being free. Yeah, that’s a game-changer.
Ahmed has started a GoFundMe to keep the game going and cites being able to help the less fortunate as the reason he started this challenge. Wow. How amazing to be that selfless at only 20 years old.
