Humanity still exists! Two thoughtful students made an elderly woman's dream come true. Kathryn Thomas has worked at the Acorn Coffee Shop on the Elon University Campus for the past decade, and later she revealed her thoughts to students of Elon, and they decided to make it a reality. Her reaction is valuable and priceless!
Taylor and Lucy two students from Elon sat and decided. Taylor added : I moved my stuff to Lucy's table, and we were just brainstorming ideas because I looked at her and was like, 'We're doing this, we can do this, we have to do something'.
They decided for a fund named GoFundMe to raise enough money and just in 3 days they collected $6,500 which is quite extra than they were asking for.
And the video below shows the awesome moment when the girls presented the gift to an emotional Kathryn, along with some bags of Disney goodies and a poster from the GoFundMe page with all the kind comments she'd received.
"I have said it before but we just truly had one of the most shocking days today as we witnessed the love and generosity pour in from across the country. Kathryn is an exceptional person and deserves every ounce of love she is receiving. We just wanted to make it totally clear that every cent of donation is headed to make Kathryn's trip as incredible as we can possibly make it for the whole family. The messages, shares, likes, texts, and all the other forms of sweet words and encouraging thoughts are so, so appreciated by both Lucy and myself. Not one message has gone unnoticed, every kind word has made us smile from ear to ear."
