- Tammy Smith, a single mother of two, wanted to do her part to help others through this pandemic and starts to bring meals to hospital workers.
- Over the last two months, she hand-delivered about 3,500 meals to the doctors and nurses at the local hospital near her.
- Jada Pinkett Smith invited her onto a special episode of Red Table Talk on Mother’s Day to send her an eco-friendly car.
One Memphis Uber driver just wanted to do her part to help others through this pandemic, so she decided on delivering food to those at the front lines. This generosity was repaid with an incredible reward from Jada Pinkett Smith.
Tammy Smith, a single mother of two, was driving home one of the nurses from an overnight shift at the local hospital a couple of months back. She wanted to show her gratitude, so she decided on bringing meals to hospital workers on social media.
From that point on, she has delivered thousands over the past two months, up to 60 meals per day, to exhausted doctors and nurses at the local hospital.
Tammy wanted to do more. She started raising money so she could deliver even more. Within two months, she raked up tens of thousands of dollars as donations and hand-delivered about 3,500 meals to the doctors and nurses
Her generous work received praises from a local news station. From that point on, the story spread even further. Later, New York Post and London’s Daily Mail reported about her work. Recently, Tammy was invited to Jada Pinkett Smith’s web show, Red Table Talk on Mother’s Day.
This was good news because more publicity meant more donations for her cause.
What happened next was more than she could have dreamed of. Jada Pinkett Smith had arranged for something unexpected. She wanted to send her a gift. “We want to purchase for you an eco-friendly car. A brand new one…for Mother’s Day,” she said.
Tammy was surprised to receive the gift. “I have never known such generosity in my entire life,” she told WMC News 5. This could not have arrived at a better time. Her ride share business took a serious hit, business is down after she started having trouble with her vehicle. This and the state-wide stay-at-home orders made things even more complicated.
Anyone who feels inspired to donate to help deliver meals to medical workers at the frontlines, please visit her GoFundMe campaign here. Tammy is also accepting donations through Venmo and PayPal.
