A 26-year-old woman in Beijing is offering her time to strangers for only one yuan (approximately $ 0.20) per hour. Peggy, as she is known, has been advertising her services on the Chinese social networking site Xiaohongshu since last month.
Peggy says that she does this as she wants to “accompany people to do things they dare not do alone” in order to “feel alive.” She has so far helped people with a variety of tasks, including shopping, cooking, and going on adventures.
One of Peggy’s first clients was a woman who was afraid of heights. Peggy accompanied the woman to the top of the Forbidden City, where the woman was able to overcome her fear.
Another client was a man who had never been to a restaurant before. Peggy took the man to a restaurant and helped him order food. The man was so happy with the experience that he gave Peggy a five-star rating on Xiaohongshu.
Peggy’s business has been growing rapidly since she started advertising her services. She is now receiving dozens of requests per day. She says that she is happy to help people and that she plans to continue her business for the foreseeable future.
Peggy’s story is a reminder that there are still people in the world who are willing to help others for free. She is an inspiration to us all and her story shows that even the smallest act of kindness can make a big difference.
