A mom raises $50,000 for a teen McDonalds employee who paid for her family’s meal when she couldn’t pay for it.
Brittany Reed shared a heartwarming story of a kind-hearted teenager who paid for her family’s meal in a Facebook post. One fateful day after her son’s football practice, they pass by McDonald’s to buy food.
The mother placed her order at the McDonalds drive-thru while her three kids were in the car crying. Then she got even more distressed after realizing she had forgotten her purse at home. Brittany felt frustrated and wanted to cry. However, the young man at the counter touched her heart.
Kind Teen McDonalds Employee
“I look at the young man with tears in my eyes just from being stressed and annoyed. And say ‘hun I am so sorry but I have to cancel that order I left my purse at home when we went to football tonight,'” she detailed in the post.
The teen employee Wyatt Jones offered to pay for her whole order at the counter, to her surprise. Before she could even resist, the teen took out his wallet and swiped his card to pay for her family’s meal. Wyatt’s kindness shocked Brittany.
“Without hesitation, he takes out his wallet and swipes his card before I could even say ‘no I will be right back!'”
“I was like wait no hun it’s ok I will come back through then he replies ‘no it’s totally fine, my pleasure,'” she recounted.
Paying Back And Raising $50,000
Brittany also wanted to let Wyatt’s parents know how kind and compassionate their son is. His kindness made her realize, “this is exactly what we parents are trying to do, raise great humans. Well Wyatt sir, you are an amazing human!”
For that reason, she came back and gave the teen more than the amount he paid for her. He refused to accept the additional amount. But after hearing that Wyatt was saving up for a car, she put up a GoFundMe page to help him.
Now, the goal of $5000 donation for him surpassed and reached $50 000.
Wyatt’s father, Kevin Jones, revealed how his son didn’t make a big deal of his small action.
“He didn’t expect anything. He just did something out of the kindness of heart for somebody in need,” the father said.
