Mom in Tears When She's Turned Away at Concert Gates, Kind Strangers Hand Over Tickets

Share

Kindness is one of the most valuable things in the world but is all too often taken for granted. Random acts of love and sacrifice usually go unnoticed.

Caring strangers walk away without gratitude. Good Samaritans are easily forgotten, appreciated for a moment but never thought of again.

Of course, that’s what a random act of kindness is all about, isn’t it? Or it should be. We don’t show compassion to others for our own sakes.

No, we reach out and lend a hand or go above and beyond for someone else’s benefit. Because maybe at that moment, that person has no one else to love on them.

One woman from Kansas shared her appreciation for three kind strangers in a Facebook post. Though Heather Hobbs never caught their names, the three anonymous friends made Heather’s night.

“The twins and I drove all the way from #KC to #RogersArkansas to go to the Pentatonix concert,” her post begins.

For those who might not know what a big deal this group is to the younger generations, Pentatonix is one of the most popular bands around right now.

Think of them as today’s New Kids on the Block. If New Kids included a girl, performed cover songs better than the originals, and mixed music genres seamlessly.

Basically, this band is the big thing right now and Heather’s kids were dying to see them in concert. So she did what any dedicated mother would do.

Heather drove several hours from Kansas City to Rogers, Arkansas, just so her fraternal twins could see their favorite music group at the Arkansas Music Pavilion.

But once the excited mother and her over-the-moon kiddos passed through security, their evening started to take a turn for the worse.

“Upon showing our tickets to box office employees,” Heather wrote, “we were informed we did NOT have tickets to this event, in fact the resellers on stub hub had given us tickets to an event in DALLAS TEXAS for a completely different day!”

The disappointed mama couldn’t afford new tickets and the people at Stub Hub told her they couldn’t help either. She and her kids were in tears over the ordeal.

It seemed their long drive had been for nothing. But that’s when a kind stranger took notice of Heather and her kids and asked what was wrong.

“After telling her the story of our travels and the issue with the bogus tickets I bought, her and her two friends then handed us their tickets,” Heather said.

“There is STILL kindness in the world,” she continues later in her post, “and I hope they know they made the night of a little boy and girl who were utterly heartbroken.”

Heather has no idea who the strangers were but she hopes her viral post, which has been shared over 3,000 times, will reach them and let them know what a difference they made for her kids that night.

As for the Arkansas Music Pavilion and Stub Hub, it has been reported that the former is giving the kind woman and her friends tickets to a concert of their choosing, while the latter has assured Heather they are trying to fix the problem so it doesn’t happen again.
