In celebration of yesterday being Give Back Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back, I loved the below story. Thanksgiving is over but there is still everyday to be thankful and help out others who do not have a meal three times, two times or even one time a day, if that. One giving man, Matt Tribe, from Utah helped 125 people have a hearty meal. Read the below article form E! Online on his amazing good deed.
What are you doing with your unlimited access to Olive Garden’s pasta?!
Utah resident Matt Tribe was one of those who decided to fork over the $100 for the restaurant’s limited edition “Never Ending Pasta Pass,” which grants holders an unlimited supply of the carb goodness for seven whole weeks.
Of course, Tribe initially went into it thinking it was simply a great investment for something he enjoyed, but later got an even better idea—he came up with “Random Acts of Pasta.”
“I realize it might be stupid to think, ‘I just gave them pasta, how does that make their day better?’ But somebody did something nice for them,” Tribe said.His goal was 100 meals, and by the end of the seven weeks, 125 people had benefited from the unlimited pasta. But there’s more…what started with friends and family, quickly turned into something even greater.
“I thought, what have I done to deserve this,” said Tribe’s friend and pasta recipient Ben Taylor. “He explained to me what he was doing, he was just giving out random acts of pasta to neighbors, friends, and even homeless people, and I thought, that’s kind of a cool story.”
So with the help of his buddy Ben, Tribe began documenting the journey through a YouTube video that shows him delivering meals to the homeless.
“It was super fulfilling,” says Tribe. “Because the entire time I was doing this for a month, just about every night, the only thing I was thinking about was who could I take Olive Garden to, who could I do Random Acts of Pasta to, who could I do something nice for.”
He added, “You forget about all your worries, you forget about all your troubles. Everything’s better.”
