BUFFALO, N.Y. (WTHR) – An Uber driver from Buffalo, New York is going viral for her random act of kindness towards a woman she met while driving.

Lamiyah Jabbar drives for Uber in her spare time and one morning, she picked up a woman who was going to work at Tim Hortons.

During the ride, Jabbar says the woman opened up to her and shared her struggles with money.

The woman told Jabbar that she takes care of her grandkids and because of that, she doesn't have much money to spend on herself.

Jabbar says the woman was hoping to be able to get a new dress for church and a robe and house shoes for Christmas.

"This was on my mind from the moment she got out my car, so I had to contribute can u imagine waiting till Christmas just to get a robe, house shoes and a outfit for church, we tend to take things for granted, but why not help someone else if u can," Jabbar wrote on Instagram.

Jabbar didn't want the woman to have to wait until Christmas for new clothes, so she took matters into her own hands and surprised the woman while she was at work.

She ended up buying the woman a new dress that she thought she might like, along with a $50 Visa gift card.

"Oh, you're so sweet," the woman said from the drive-through window. "Thank you so much! This has been such a horrible day. You just made my day!"

Jabbar's video has been viewed more than 18,000 times.
