What a perfect example of the saying, not all heroes wear capes. Sometimes…it’s the FedEx drivers!

A FedEx driver who took the time to carefully sanitize a delivery at a home where a child has an autoimmune disease is being celebrated. In a time where delivery services are busier than ever, Justin Bradshaw stopped to sanitize the boxes he delivered to a Florida home when he saw a sign was posted warning that someone who lives at the house has an autoimmune disease.

With everything going on, he could have easily just placed the boxes on the step and acted like he didn’t see the sign, or just say that he did it if it ever got back to him. But that wasn’t the case for Justin Bradshaw.

A camera set up on the home’s front porch caught the act of kindness and the child’s mom, Carrie Blasi, shared the story on Twitter.

Carrie’s daughter, Emma, has type 1 diabetes, which makes her more susceptible to the effects of the coronavirus, so the sign was put up as an extra precaution. The mom says, “That single act made me forget about everything we have been going through since the first of March.”

We encourage you to display an act of kindness this week! However big or small, it can make a difference.
