13-year-old Gabriel has a lawn mowing business. He was buying mowers at yard sales and pawn shops, only to have them break down. Then he met Shannon, who works at Lowe's in Cleveland, TN. They were chatting while Gabriel browsed the lawnmowers. He told her how his latest mower had died after mowing 7 yards one day, so he worked other jobs to earn money for a new one.
Shannon said, “When he came in to buy a mower, we were going to sell him one for what he had saved." But then she and her team at Lowe's decided to reward him for his hard work and gave him the mower for free.
After Shannon posted the story on social media, people were asking how they could donate to Gabriel's business. So, she set up a GoFundMe page for him which has raised more than $2,400 so far.
