Brittany Reed, a mother from Ohio, stopped at McDonald’s on her way back for supper since she was all tired out after the hectic day.
When Brittany drove up to the drive-through window to pay for her order, all three of her children were “now weeping for one reason or the other,” s he realized that she’d forgotten her handbag at home.
She reflected on it “I look at the young guy with tears in my eyes simply because I am so annoyed, and I say, ‘Hey, I am so sorry but I have to cancel that order. I forgot to bring my purse with me and left it at home.
Wyatt Jones, the employee, took out his wallet, swiped his credit card, and paid for the overwhelmed mother’s supper without a chance for Brittany to raise an objection.
Brittany Reed says that this is exactly the type of optimism that the world needs at this moment, even if Wyatt Jones downplayed the significance of his act of compassion. Therefore, she quickly took a snapshot and posted it on social media along with this message:
“I just wanted to make sure that his parents were aware of how KIND and COMPASONATE their kid was tonight! Wyatt, do not let this world alter your kind heart young man, because it is people like YOU who will change this world for the better!”
Brittany had a deep desire to do a significant thing for the sweet young lady who worked at McDonald’s as she wanted him to be aware that when you do good in the world, it would return back to you tenfold.
Before Brittany Reed was able to make contact with her, Wyatt’s mother was unaware of the kind act that her son had performed on behalf of the community. The young guy didn’t even bother to bring it up since, in his mind, it wasn’t a big matter at all.
Brittany found out that Wyatt was putting money aside to purchase a car when she made contact with Wyatt’s mother and with her blessing, Brittany and her husband launched a fundraising effort with the intention of assisting the young man in realizing his ambition.
When asked about Wyatt’s response to the ad, she said, “He was really astonished.”
But when more contributions came in, everyone was taken aback by turn of events. Brittany had no idea that people would react in such an awesome way.In a short amount of time, Brittany was able to gather more than $40,000 via the fundraising.
In an update that she posted on the Wyatt Jones Go Fund Me page, she stated that “Wyatt will now have enough money to buy a car and start saving for college.”
Wyatt also commented on the events: ” It’s really astounding to think that something like that can get you this far”.
