A 13-year-old boy, William Preston, did not like the way his mother was going through life's tough challenges as a single mother of three.
As a way to help his mother, William got a job as a land mower as part of a plan to get his mother a vehicle, Understanding Compassion reports.
Are you joking?
When the teen came home one day and told his mother that he had got her a car, the woman laughed it off and said “ya, right!”
“No mum, I’m so serious I bought you a car. Come on we have to go.”
The mother stated that when he said that, she had mixed emotions of confusion and doubt as she asked him: “To where?”
The mother cried
When they got outside, a woman was waiting who drove them to where the car was. Krystal broke down in tears, CBS reports.
“I completely lost it. I started balling my eyes out… I am speechless… my 13-year-old son bought me a car.”
How he did it
When William saw that a woman was selling a car online in his area, he traded his Xbox and also did as much lawn clearing work as possible in exchange for the car.
William’s mum said:
“I am so proud of my son. He is such a good kid. He may have his days but OMG what 13-year-old kid do you know that buys his mom a car… William I love you son and thank you. You have such a big heart and I love you.”
Another selfless son
With a placard that reads “Need to help my mum with rent. God bless”, the young man would make music on the street as passersby donated.
A woman known as Lexy Kadey saw him and knew that he really needed help. Before that encounter, Lexy had done a Venmo challenge which raised $1000.
