A series of events at the Waffle House have gone viral recently, and this summer, the attention is on one man handing out money at the restaurant. Read on to find out how this man is inspiring us to love every one.

Who is the Man Handing Out Money at the Waffle House?

Former member of the Obama administration, Kevin Cate, was at a Waffle House in Midway, Florida this summer, when he noticed a man sitting alone at a table. Cate noticed this man was attaching notes to one dollar and five dollar bills, and he became curious. So Cate greeted the man and asked him about the money and notes.

According to Cate, the man handing out money had been doing it since 2014, after his mom passed away and her last words were “love every one.”

Cate was so moved by the man, he snapped a photo and posted it to Twitter.

In his conversation with the man at the Waffle House, Cate learned the man handing out money had given away more than $13,000. He’d primarily done this to strangers, and at the Waffle House specifically, only because it is his favorite restaurant. And, of course, because of his mother’s last words, the man also gave people notes that said, “love every one.” It’s a way for him to honor his mother.
