Money is tight and is responsible for a variety of rescue animals, and her disabled brother, Gwyn-Jaramillo was “too embarrassed to say out loud I was having financial difficulties, but it was a solid issue. I made rice for me and the dogs to eat. I was losing sleep. I was crying daily. I rationed petrol in my car,” she wrote.

“It was breaking me into pieces,” she continued.

That is when a friend of the woman, who has not yet been identified, stepped in to help, providing Gwyn-Jaramillo with a $250 gift card to Whole Foods.

With the gift card in hand, Gwyn-Jaramillo on the way to the supermarket on Monday “with a dream of hummus and fresh food. Real dog food for the pups. Maybe a pizza with roasted exotic toppings,” she wrote.

“He was just doing something for a sloppy, hurried stranger. The show of love in his soul. Shining a light into the world,” she wrote, adding that the rapper “had no idea of her personal hardships.

“What Ludacris could not know, is that his quiet kindness and generous gesture came at a time that my candle was out,” she continued. “He used his personal light fire-up of my own.”
