It was Mrs. Paternoster’s daughter’s birthday, and due to the lockdown and social distancing, they couldn’t arrange for a party or have any guests over.

So the FedEx delivery man brought along some ice cream cupcakes. “Ok @FedEx our driver deserves a bonus!” she tweeted. “He realized it was our daughter’s birthday & went to @DairyQueen to get her ice cream cupcakes.”

“He said ‘I just wanted to do this because if we weren’t in this situation, she’d be celebrating with friends.’ I’m not crying. You’re crying!”

She shared a photo of the moment when her daughter wearing a colorful birthday outfit and staring happily at the tray of four adorable cupcakes with the delivery man standing at the doorway, presumably smiling.

More than 100,000 people liked her tweet and chimed in to thank the kind driver.

“UPDATE: This wonderful man’s name is Jodan Price and those that know him have reached out to me and described him as an incredibly selfless and kind man who loves to do for others,” Paternoster shared four days later. “Please consider showing him love by tweeting a shout out or thank you for just being awesome!”

On May 5, the deliveryman stopped by for a second and was thanked again.

“UPDATE: Mr. Price stopped by and we got to thank him,” the grateful mom wrote. “I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Our hearts are full and we feel so blessed to have the best @FedEx delivery man in the world!”

The online commotion was noticed by Austin Price, the FedEx deliveryman’s son, and made sure to relay the thanks and show his dad the posts and what people were writing.

“I appreciate all of the comments!” he tweeted. “I have been showing them to my Dad and he appreciates each every one of them!”

“It has put a big smile on his face. Thank you!”

Even Dairy Queen got in on the action, and shared the story and wished the birthday girl all the best.

“Who doesn’t love to read about the random acts of kindness that happen in the world?” the Tipton Dairy Queen Grill & Chill Facebook page shared. “Wishing this little girl the happiest of birthdays! #Wemakehappy”

A little act of kindness by the FedEx delivery man has put a smile on the faces of hundreds of thousands of people’s faces.
