Steve Harvey has become an American institution, providing humor and homilies in equal measure throughout the course of his illustrious career. He’s not just a television personality, he is also a class act and a great representation of the American values that we all uphold.
While he is certainly rich beyond his wildest dreams and one of the most famous in the country, he has not allowed his success to go to his head or change the person he is on the inside. As the son of a coal miner, he is empathetic to the struggles of others and knows what it is like not to be able to make ends meet.
Steve recently shared a story about a contestant who was clearly distressed about their inability to win money, a man who was sweating through his clothing. Even though Steve initially tried to share a few laughs with him, he could tell something was very wrong and when the man dropped to his knees to sob uncontrollably once his team won, the game show host knew something was amiss.
It was then that he let Steve know why he was so emotional, looking him in the eyes and telling him that he was about to die and since he had no insurance, he needed to win the money to help take care of his family after he passed on.
Steve was so touched by the man’s story, he decided to bolster his winnings by handing him another $25,000 out of his own pocket. This is one of the most selfless acts of kindness that we have ever seen and we are grateful to live in a world where those who have been blessed are ready and willing to help the less fortunate.
This gripping video definitely deserves a moment of your time and we are sending our best wishes to this family. This unforgettable moment needs to be passed along to your closest friends and and family members as soon as possible.
