This Girl Scored The Best Prom Date Ever. All It Took Was Gut And 10,000 Retweets.

Good deed.

This story will teach you two things.

One: everything is possible if you really want it and work for it. Two: be careful with your promises.

Both of these lessons were learned by two very different people over the weekend: Virginia teen Hannah Delmonte and Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Emmanuel Acho.

About two months ago, Delmonte reached out to Acho on Instagram offering the NFL player a bet: If she got 2,000 retweets on Twitter, she could take him as a date to her school's prom. To everyone's surprise, Acho was down to play and responded with new conditions: If Delmonte was got 10,000 retweets, he'd go to the dance with her.

What do you think happened next?

Three hours later, Delmonte scored the 10,000 quota and has been collecting retweets ever since. The number is now at a little bit more than 17,000.


After Delmonte surpassed the quota, Acho posted this image to Instagram with the caption: "Never again will I respond to an Instagram DM! Lol, well.. Where do I buy a corsage?!"

A man of his word, Acho surprised his fan with an unexpected visit and formally asked her to prom.

Needless to say, she was excited to see him. According to ESPN, Acho will return to Virginia for the big night.

In his Instagram and Twitter posts, Acho also refered to this experience as "awesome," "raw" and "priceless."

He said the moral of this story is that "when you have a chance to positively impact someone, don't make excuses, make it happen."
