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

Daydreaming

One day, he was driving by a mini-mart when he noticed a Krispy Kreme truck. Chris always liked Krispy Kreme donuts. He began to daydream of what it would be like to jump in and start driving it. “And then just go around and give away the donuts,” he explained. Sort of like Robin Hood, robbing sweet treats from the rich and giving them to the poor.

Job Application

Chris even applied for a job with Krispy Kreme! “I knew I wouldn’t get the job. But at least then I could say when they arrested me, ‘Hey, man, I applied,” Chris said in an interview with CBS News in January 2014. It seems like he really put a lot of thought into helping those kids get some free donuts.

Facebook Message

Chris’ dream of stealing a Krispy Kreme delivery truck never happened, but his mission to help brighten the lives of the people in his community most certainly did. Krispy Kreme, who had heard about his dream to steal one of their delivery trucks through Facebook, reached out to Chris directly to make him a sweet offer that he couldn’t refuse.

Doughnut Truck

As most of you know, most companies wouldn’t see the humor in a man threatening to steal from them, but Krispy Kreme actually wanted to help turn Chris’ scheme into a reality. When Krispy Kreme sent Chris two trucks filled to the brim with delicious donuts, he instantly became their newest and proudest driver.

Giving Away Donuts

Throughout the day, Chris visited several different places, including cancer wards, a local park, and a children’s hospital, and passed out donuts to hundreds of sugar-loving children. “We’re glad to make some people smile,” said Chris.
