A kind-hearted New Jersey woman was in for the surprise of her life at a local Wawa this week when she paid for what she thought was a struggling man’s cup of coffee.
It turned out, that man short on a few dollars cash ended up being country legend Keith Urban.
My favorite story of the day is how my 3rd grade teacher thought @KeithUrban was down on his luck and couldn’t pay for his wawa snacks so she bought them for him. What an angel. pic.twitter.com/mJccVOQWtp

And this isn’t the first time the retired elementary school teacher has helped a person in need. In fact, she makes a habit of treating someone once a week at that exact same convenience store.
“For three years, I have made a resolution to once a week treat someone at Wawa,” she wrote on Facebook. “Occasionally it happens more than once a week.”
“This man was short a few dollars,” Ruth continued. “He asked a lady with him if she had money.”
That’s when Ruth jumped in to save the day for what appeared to be a stranger down on his luck:
“I jumped in and said I would pay and explained why. He thanked me and asked my name. I asked him his and he told me it was Keith. I said he did look like Keith Urban, he said he was. I didn’t believe him, I asked where Nicole was and who was the lady. He told me it was his sister. He finally said I could ask his bodyguard. It was then I realized what an idiot I was. He graciously allowed me to get my picture taken with him. Another Ruth Reed moment!”
Kudos to this wonderful woman for her generosity and for making the world just a little bit brighter each week by helping those in need–EVEN when it comes to helping out a country music star.
