A Random Act of Kindness

Tristan and his #1 Fan Aries – Contributed photo

It was quite the morning for almost 2-year-old, Aries Unpingco, as the garbage truck pulled up to his house to get the family’s garbage.

Every Tuesday morning Aries waits for the garbage truck by the window and when it arrives, he waves frantically and shouts, “Hi, garbage man! Hi garbage truck!”

Today, the garbage man got out of his truck and knocked on the front door. Garbage truck driver, Tristan Savell, asked if his #1 fan was available to come out to see the garbage truck. Tristan gave Aries a toy garbage truck, just like the real one, and asked to take a picture with Aries sitting on the steps of the truck.

Thank you, Tristan! Aries is your #1 fan. Your heartwarming gesture means so much! You went above and beyond your job duty to make someone else’s day great.

  1. Amazing story, and the type of story we long to hear more often. The world needs more kindness, and it is refreshing to hear about Tristan’s act of kindness in the midst of political campaigns and stories about terrorism. Well done, Tristan! You’ve set the mark high. Thank you Carrie and Juan for sharing this story.
