Dying Man Spreads Kindness And Inspiration By Giving Away Krispy Kreme Donuts.

Some people spend their entire lives trying to figure out how to be a good person, or how to make the world a better place. Sometimes this can be hard to do, especially if you don't know where to start. This man was living a life that many people can only dream of having, but when received news about his health, he decided to make some changes.

Happy Life

Chris Rosati, a resident of Durham, North Carolina, seemed to have everything that he could have ever wanted. He had a wife who adored him, two beautiful little girls, and a very good job working as a marketing vice president. He was in the best shape of his life, recently finishing his 2nd triathlon. It was obvious that the 41-year-old man was living the “American Dream.”

The Diagnosis

But everything in Chris’ life changed in 2012. Sadly, Chris was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. The Rosatis were completely taken by surprise when they heard the news, and since there was no cure for the deadly disease, it seemed like Chris’ charming life was going to come to an end.


Most people would break under such stressful circumstances, but not Chris. Chris used his diagnosis as an important opportunity to reevaluate what really mattered in his life. He took all of his energy and focused on what he valued most: his loving family.


“We’re missing the greatest experience we’ll ever have, ever. You always think that people who are dying want to get up early and watch the sunrise. I don’t. I like to sleep – but if my kids get up early, I want that experience,” Chris said of himself, and others who tend to put their career before their family.

An Idea

Chris also made it his purpose to spread as much kindness as he possibly could to as many people as he could. While most people would donate their time to work in a soup kitchen, or to build houses for the homeless, Chris had a much different idea!
