In less than a week, a Chicago couple has become a viral sensation for doing one thing helping the poor.

It began when Chicago resident Jack Stankovic noticed a couple on a city blue line train leave some money for a sleeping disabled homeless man, Stankovic noted in a Facebook post, adding that the money wasnt spare change, either.

That post has since been shared more than 70,000 times, as people searched to find the couple.

Eventually, the couple was discovered to be Courtney White and his wife Tanya Prewitt-White, who were coming back from an Alabama funeral when they saw the man on the train, according to NBC Chicago.

The couple told NBC Chicago they gave the homeless man money as a way of paying it forward and didnt expect all the attention.

"We were getting off at Irving Park, and I had grabbed some money to give him," Prewitt-White told The Chicago Tribune. My husband had the same idea, so he already had money out to give him. I handed my additional money to my husband, and he just slipped it all into the gentleman's bag and we walked off."
