There’s quite a lot of negativity out there at the monent, so I thought I’d bring some joy with this story. It’s quite old but it still goes to show how one person’s actions can make a huge difference.
Teenager Jackie Garza was desperate to help save her father’s floundering bakery business and did what most teenagers do today; she turned to social media. Jackie went on Twitter and posted:
“Hey y’all my dad has a little panaderia/ restaurant. He makes all of the pan dulce himself. He been thinking about closing but I can’t let that happen, spread the word 1 rt could bring in a potential customer!”
She wrote in the caption, along with the restaurant’s address. She pressed ‘send’ and waited.
Since posting her tweet, this message has gone viral, with more than 48,000 likes, nearly 60,000 retweets and over 1.1 million views.
Thanks to her savvy thinking, business has been booming ever since. I love the fact that her father, didn’t even know what Twitter was. I hope that business is still booming.
