It’s the ‘Year of Giving’ in the UAE, and that coupled with the fact that it's Ramadan means that many people are paying it forward with kind gestures. Social media celebrity Abdullaziz Baz (aka Bin Baz) teamed up with Etihad Airways to surprise taxi drivers in Abu Dhabi with a gift.
Bin Baz posted a clip on his Instagram, where he has over four million followers, showing himself having a chat with different taxi drivers. One man explains that it has been more than two years since he’s seen his daughters.
At the end of the clip the Emirati comedian and social media star says, “Before I go, I have a surprise for you from Etihad Airways. It’s a free ticket to your country. You can use it whenever you want.”
He captioned the clip: “Giving back to those we pass if your daily life, with @etihadairways #YearofGiving.
