Brittany Reed of Waynesville, Ohio, posted on Facebook about how a teenager working at McDonald’s didn't hesitate to cover her order while she was on the verge of tears.
"We go through the drive through, order food, all three kids are now crying for one reason or the other. I go to pay - I LEFT MY PURSE AT HOME. Welp now I wanted to cry. 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' WITHOUT HESITATION he takes out his wallet and swipes his card before I could even say 'no I will be right back!'"
After her post went viral, Brittany did some research and found out that the teen, Wyatt, was working at McDonald's to buy a car. So she started a GoFundMe page.
"Hello! My name is Brittany Reed I recently shared a post to Facebook about how this EXTREMELY kind young man working the drive thru at McDonalds paid for my meal when I had forgotten my purse. We are setting this Go Fund Me up for him because we have recently found out that he is working at McDonald’s to save up to buy a car and I want to pay it forward and show him the same type of kindness he showed me."
The page had a goal of $5,000. In less than a week, the campaign has raised more than $34,000 for Wyatt.
“I am seriously shaking ... look what you have done for this young man!! From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!!! Thank you for showing Wyatt ( and EVERYONE that has seen this story) that kindness DOES MATTER!!?
