The heartbreaking footage of an Amazon delivery driver taking a moment to pray for her baby has captured hearts all around the world...
via: GettyAnd it truly goes to show the difficulties that delivery workers for Amazon are going through right now.
Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon, is the wealthiest man in the world.
via: GettyThe title all of us dream of one day acquiring.
Bezos is a multi-billionaire... soon to be a trillionaire.
via: GettyAnd, according to Forbes, his current net worth stands in at around $146 billion. The only man close to matching this eye-watering figure is Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates, who is worth around $113.1 billion.
The birth of Amazon.com changed everything for Bezos.
via: GettyThe initial success of the online store back in 1994 was staggering. Within the first thirty days, Amazon.com had sold books all across the United States, and across forty-five foreign countries.
And the online retailer only went from strength to strength.
via: GettyIn mere years following from its launch, Amazon.com began stocking a wider variety of products, such as electronics, clothing, and toys, making it the number one online retailer. And, as of this year, the company alone has been reported to be worth $1000B.
But, despite all of his success...
via: GettyBezos has faced a significant amount of controversy regarding his work ethics and spending habits.
It has been revealed that Bezos provides a shockingly low standard of working conditions for his employees.Over the last couple of years, more and more stories of Amazon workers being forced to work unethical hours for ridiculously low wages - as little as $10 an hour, in some instances - have been emerging.
During this global pandemic, he's really shown his true colors.

The Amazon Relief Fund was set up to assist "employees and partners."It was created with twenty-five-million dollars from the e-commerce company to help those who are responsible for delivering goods across America.
Here's what it's focus is...
The company did contribute a fair amount to the fund.

But one Amazon worker has captured hearts all around the world recently...
via: GettyFor the most devastating of reasons.
A RING doorbell camera outside of an Idaho home captured the amazing footage.
via: CBS NewsRaquel and Derek Pearson captured the exact moment when Monica Salinas dropped off their parcel and then paused for a moment.
Raquel and Derek's 8-month-old son Lucas lives with an aberrant right subclavian artery (ARSA), a type of congenital vascular anomaly that has made him very unwell.
via: FacebookThe couple recently decided to pin a note on their door to thank delivery drivers who have been delivering Lucas' medication, which read: "We have an infant with medical needs and online deliveries are essential to his health. You are helping keep our son alive and well."
The parents are now relying on delivery drivers more than ever.
via: Facebook"He needs special thickeners to be able to eat, otherwise he aspirates his milk, so we really depend on getting all of these supplies online so we don't have to go out to the store and bring a virus home," Raquel told KTVB. "We just want to minimize exposure to the virus."
When Monica delivered the parcel, she took a few moments to quietly send a prayer.
via: CBS NewsShe stood motionless for several seconds until she did the sign of the cross before walking back to her van.
Raquel spoke to KTVB about the encounter...
via: CBS NewsShe said: "I noticed that she was standing there, and I didn't really realize what she was doing until I saw her doing the sign of the cross. I was like 'Oh my gosh, she was praying'. I kind of choked up a bit."
The fact that Monica took time out of her busy schedule to send a prayer for the family truly touched the couple.
@CBSNews Even if you aren't religious or don't believe in prayer... You have to admit this is one of the nicest gestures a human can make.— 3rdShiftMorningShow (@3rdShiftMorningShow)1590504227.0
And it seems that Requel and Derek aren't the only ones touched by this kind gesture.
