Viral photo: Man donates Thanksgiving groceries to people in need

An Oklahoma woman's Facebook post about a kindhearted stranger has gone viral.

Lisa Austerman, of Oklahoma City, said she was shopping at Walmart ahead of Thanksgiving and ended up behind a man with a number of turkeys in the checkout line. 

Austerman said she commented on his items and told him "Wow, you're cooking for a lot of people this Thanksgiving."

His response warmed her heart.

"Actually, I'm donating all of it," he told her. "So much negativity going around right now. I needed to do something to help." 

Austerman said the man's gesture was a reminder that we all need good in the world. Her picture of the man checking out at Walmart on November 11 has been shared more than 31,000 times.
