Struggling mom and boy are starving at McDonald’s. Then cashier hands them an anonymous note


Shareably is not new to stories involving the kind acts of strangers, including the recent report of a man who donated a hundred dollars to a complete stranger by including it in a Redbox DVD case.

In a story shared on Facebook, a person details their encounter at a McDonald’s restaurant with a mother who needed a little help. The writer of the post observed a woman sitting alone a table. She was seemingly waiting for somebody, and a little time passed before a man walked in with a young child and headed straight to her table.

“You were supposed to be here an hour ago. Hey, do you have a couple dollars so I can get a cheeseburger? All I have is enough for his happy meal,” the woman told the man. The man’s response to the mother of his child was to starve.

The person who wrote the Facebook post saw this all happen before their eyes, and the situation only got worse when the woman was thirty-seven cents short on her son’s happy meal, forcing her to dig through the seats of her car before allocating enough to cover the food.

Having seen all this happen as they sat comfortably after a full meal, the person who had seen the hard times this woman was clearing enduring decided to step in anonymously and provide her and her son with a full meal. Going over to the cashier and paying for the meal, the person included a simple note before the cashier anonymously delivered it to the mother and son.

“Keep your head up and always push forward. You CAN. You WILL,” the note read.

The cashier walked two McDoubles, and order of large fries, and a large drink to the mother and son. Confused at first with the reasoning behind the free meal, the cashier explained that it was bought for them by somebody else, but they asked to keep their identity anonymous. The mother opened up the note and read the message inside, and immediately began to tear up.

The kind stranger who bought this mother and son a nice meal had wise parting words for the people reading their Facebook post.

“Life is hard. Always be willing to make someone’s life a little easier. Little things make a big impact. For any single parent stuck in a similar place…keep your head up and always push forward. You CAN. You WILL.”
