Saudi Man Sets Up Charity Fridge in Heartwarming Charity Act

The generous act of charity of an anonymous Saudi Arabian man has gained worldwide recognition.

An anonymous Saudi man from the city of Hail has installed a refrigerator on his property that he and fellow members of the community fill with leftover food, so that the poor people of Hail will be spared the shame of begging for food.

The story gained worldwide attention on social media after it was tweeted by prominent Islamic theologian Mohamad al-Arefe.

Here’s the translation from the BBC: "I've always said the people of Hail are generous. A man puts a fridge outside his house for leftover food; an indirect act of charity for the needy. Oh how I love you, Hail!"

In advance of the upcoming Muslim celebration of Ramadan, which will begin at the end of June, a Bahraini citizen called Salah told Gulf News that a similar concept should be implemented in Bahrain.

“There is the food factor, but there is also the spiritual dimension, especially during the sacred month when people engage deeply in acts of charity,” said Salah.

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My neighbour's sister has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out.
