A few days back we posted about a woman who was shopping at an Atlanta Whole Foods when her bill exceeded the amount money she had on her gift card. The 41-year-old was down on her luck and broke down in tears when a man named Chris stepped in and purchased her groceries for her. It wasn’t until later that Therra Gwyn-Jaramillo realized that Chris was in fact, Ludacris.
The New York Times got ahold the story and did some digging on the matter and found out that Ludacris has been pulling this generous move more than once, he’s also an avid shopper at Whole Foods and has been spotted endless times at the grocery chain – here’s pro:
He even hits up Whole Foods outside his city.
All in all, if you’re a true Ludacris fan and/or want to test your luck on the chance to score some free food, head to the Atlanta Whole Foods.
Therra Gwyn-Jaramillo was a little short at the register at Whole Foods in Atlanta. The 41-year-old woman who lost her beloved spouse in 2014 had fallen on hard times emotionally & financially. A friend hers fered her a $250 gift card for the specialty chain all places. So like anyone in her position she strode to the register thinking her grocery haul was within her price gauge.
The cashier finalized her tally the items on the conveyor belt, a price point well over Gwyn-Jaramillo’s internalized budget $250. In a sudden rush embarassment, Therra broke out in tears; the items were too numerous to count, and Whole Foods isn’t a locale in which pleading and begging is socially accepted (not that she would).
Little did she know, Ludacris, a man she identified not as a famous rapper, but as a “nice-looking man” started replacing her items on the belt. At his insistence, Ludacris urged her to let him cover the cost her groceries. “I finally managed to say ‘What is your name?’ and introduce myself. He said, simply, ‘Chris,’ and shook my hand,” said Therra to CBS News.
After running an optimized Google search she was able to identify her famous benefactor, a discovery that drove her to write a now viral Facebook status read by thousands upon thousands users on the platform.
Throughout the exchange, Therra Gwyn-Jaramillo kept asking herself “Does he know? Does he know he’s an angel?” Luda responded with “What in the world is in that bag, what you got in that Whole Foods bag?”
