After panic shopping, the stores were cleaned and that is when Michael Guirgis from Sydney discovered a haul of vintage toilet paper. Later it turned out that the rolls were from the 1980s (located in his father’s storage room).
In the present situation, instead of keeping them, the big-hearted man decided t give them away.
"We are giving away free 1980s-1990s Petal vintage single-ply toilet rolls to those in desperate need. No this is not a joke.," he wrote in his Facebook post. Soon hundreds of people started sending messages to Michael.
"I’m in a confused state right now – hundreds of people messaging me from this morning and last night," Mr. Giurgis told.
Michael's father, Sobhi, who migrated to Australia from Egypt in the late 1960s, had filled the storeroom full of vintage items.
"Thankfully in the far corner I found these babies, approx 270 rolls. It’s like winning the jackpot. Never have I been so excited to see toilet paper," he said.
"I don’t know how to prioritize who to give them to. Obviously the elderly and disadvantaged should be looked after first. I have a list of about ten places to go and deliver some this afternoon."
When asked about benefitting himself, Mr. Giurgis told he would not take money as his father ‘would definitely want this to be shared around.’
