When someone goes through their life spreading joy and good energy it is nice to see that recognized. That is the case for Herman Gordon who moved from Jamaica to the U.K. when he was just 12 years old. It has been nearly a decade since he was last able to return to see his family and all of that time he has been working as a custodian at Bristol University. It turns out that his positive vibes affected the students at that university so much that when they learned how long it had been since he last went home they decided to do something about it and through a fundraising campaign managed to put together £1,500 (or over $2000 US) for plane tickets to send him back to Kingston.
Their reason? That was delivered in an envelope along with the cash “On behalf of the students at Bristol, we would like to thank you for all the positive energy you have given to us throughout the years,” read the note. “You have brightened many of our days and we want you to know that we love and appreciate you.”
