"Random Acts of Pizza:" Helping the Boston Marathon Survivors
After last week's bombings at the Boston Marathon, many individuals across the country felt compelled to take action and help the victims. One woman in California took to Reddit (a popular online community), offering to buy pizza for those stranded in Boston. She dubbed her subreddit "Random Acts of Pizza."
"I just wanted to show some small support so I offered to buy pizza for people who were housing stranded runners," Kosearas, a 23-year-old IT administrator who lives in Huntington Beach, Calif., told The Huffington Post of her decision to post a message on the subreddit "Random Acts of Pizza."
But while Kosearas was expecting to get a few requests for food from people in the Boston area, she said she never could have anticipated the massive outpouring of support she got from the Reddit community, many of whom offered help of their own.
