What separates the man from other delivery men was the way he always relates with his customer with a smile and says:

“Hello! Are you looking for some pizza?”

One of his customers, Carlos Valdez, got so used to him that he always requested his service. Each time the man came to his house, he would record him with a security door camera.

When he posted the video on TikTok, many people were amazed by it all and wondered why he was doing such a job at a very old age.

A fundraising account was set up for him and people started donating until the money got to an amazing level of $12,069 (N4,971,945.24).

When Derin saw the money people had raised for him, he got so emotional and began crying with a shaky voice.

Carlos said:

“This couldn’t have gone any better,” said Carlos. “He needed this. I’m just glad we could help him. We just need to treat people with kindness and respect the way he does. He stole our hearts.”
