Here’s how much we appreciate random acts of kindness right now: A mom in Ohio ordered a bunch of food at McDonald’s, and then realized she forgot her purse at home. But when she tried to cancel the order, the kid working the drive-thru pulled out HIS debit card and paid for it. So to thank him, her husband started a GoFundMe page to help buy him the car he’s been saving up for . . . and it’s now raised over $30,000.
Novelist James Patterson is giving money to teachers to help them build reading skills in their students. He’s providing 5-thousand grants of $500 to teachers and they’ll also get 500 club points from Scholastic Book Clubs. Over the years, he’s given $11-million to teachers to support and encourage reading.
