(Kansas City) With only $7 to her name and bills past due, a single mother who lost her job a month ago, found a $1 bill in a grocery store parking lot. She bought a scratch-off ticket and won $100.
Shetara’s 12-year-old daughter suggested they donate the money to a local police officer who was shot in the line of duty on July 2.
"She won $100, and I said we should donate it to the police officer that got shot for his family to go eat and see him."
Shetara had another daughter, who was killed in 2012. She says “The detectives were really there for us. They did things they didn't have to do. They came to see my kids. They just gave us hope. They were good for us."
So she donated the money. She didn't leave her name or number, and it took police days to track her down. Once they did, they created a GoFundMe account for her family. So far, it's raised more than $93,000.
