Poor boy pays bus ticket for a woman and her baby; later, the woman assists the boy.

“The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway,” – Mother Teresa.

Have you ever noticed that those who don’t have much are the kindest? Perhaps it is because these folks know what it is like to be helpless and do not want anyone else to feel the same way.

This beautiful story shared on AmoMama has restored our faith in humanity. It reminds us that there are still good people out there, and that no matter how modest a gesture of kindness is, it always has a big impact.

Sandra Anderson found herself in problems after marrying her husband, the father of her infant daughter Ava. He turned out to be ᴀʙᴜsɪᴠᴇ, making Sandra’s life terrible.

Sandra’s mom warned her of the type of person her husband could be, but she decided to marry him anyway.

Sandra, unable to tolerate the ᴀʙᴜsᴇ any longer, took her baby and sought refuge at her friend Bethany’s home. She planned to stay there until she could muster the courage to tell her mother what had happened.

Unfortunately, she received a call from the hospital informing her that her mother had suffered a heart attack. Sandra, panicked, wrapped Ava in a blanket and dashed to the bus. The weather was terribly cold, and this poor mother could not wait to board. However, once inside, she realized she had forgotten her wallet and was unable to pay for the ride.

Sandra attempted to explain to the driver that she was in a rush and wanted to go to the hospital as quickly as possible, but he insisted she get off the bus.

As Sandra rushed towards the bus entrance, she heard a voice remark, “I will pay for her fare! “Please do not tell them to leave.”

When she turned back, she saw that the person offering to pay for her transportation was a young boy. She sat next to him and expressed gratitude for his kindness. The youngster introduced himself as Nicholas and stated that his mother always taught him that “if you have the means to help someone, you should always do so!” He went on to say that he was returning home from visiting his ailing grandmother.

Sandra asked for his address because she wanted to thank Nicholas’ mother for raising such a caring boy.

Sandra visited Nicholas the next day. However, once there, her heart shattered into a million pieces. Nicholas and his mother lived in a dilapidated two-room home. The mother appeared incredibly exhausted. It was clear she worked hard to provide for her son, whose father abandoned her after learning she was carrying his baby.

Sandra went to her friend’s house and informed her about Nicholas. She said that she wanted to launch a GoFundMe page to support them, and Bethany volunteered to spread it on social media, where she has a large following.

To everyone’s astonishment, the GoFundMe received a lot of attention, and money began to stream in. Sandra, believe it or not, raised more than $1 million.

Nicholas and his mother were taken aback when she presented them with the money. This represented a fresh start for them and the grandmother.

Never in a million years did the young boy expect his compassionate act to change his life for the better.
