No One Eats Alone on Christmas Day

A Turkish restaurant in London called Shish put up this sign last month. The Muslim-owned business is reaching out to the homeless and elderly of the Sidcup neighborhood to ensure no one is alone all day for the holiday.

Hasan Masud, who works at Shish Restaurant, told BuzzFeed News: “We’re just helping people.” He said the team at Shish also wanted to open their doors to the elderly because “lots of people stay home alone for Christmas… They don’t need to. They can come here and have some fun.”

After a great response on social media, the restaurant upgraded the sign.

If the publicity gets the restaurant more business, it will only enable them to serve more free shish kebab on Christmas Day. Besides, the food looks awesome. -via Uproxx

People can be so kind. It's this sort of humanity that makes me cry tears of thankfulness. These people are blessed for their kindness. They truly know what it is to live their faith and to help ALL people regardless of their religious beliefs.
