A family of his regular customers used to share videos on Tik Tok of deliveries and decided to ask his followers to make a donation to help the nice old man financially.
An 89-year-old pizza delivery man, who resides in the state of Utah (USA), was caught with a tip of $ 12,000. Derlin Newey, who works about 30 hours a week due to not being able to pay his bills with only social security, received a visit on Tuesday from certain regular customers who gave him an envelope with cash and a check signed by his “TikTok Family.”

The Valdez family, in particular, explained that they began recording Newey’s deliveries on that platform, being inspired by the great kindness of a man who soon conquered the hearts of his 53,000 followers. “It’s crazy. Everyone loves him,” Carlos Valdez was quoted as saying by KSL TV. On the other hand, some netizens often questioned the fact that the man had to work at his advanced age, and then the family had an idea.
The Valdese asked their supporters to make a donation to help Newey financially, and they quickly raised that remarkable amount. The old man, who did not even know what TikTok was, was very grateful for that gesture. “I don’t know what to say except thank you,” she said, unable to hold back her tears.
