A Memphis teen’s offer to carry groceries to a man’s car in exchange for some doughnuts has led to a wave of online donations for him and his disabled mother that have totaled $278,000 in 13 days.
Two weeks ago Matt White met Chauncy Black, a “straight-A student” who was just trying to get some food to eat in exchange for menial work.
Through videos shot by Matt, people learned Chauncy slept on the floor, had tattered clothes, and a courteous attitude and willingness to do anything to earn money.
Donations poured in and now a legal trust is being set up to manage the money. The pair have been moved to an undisclosed hotel, and Matt White has got himself a new family, with the top priority to do the right thing with a sudden windfall of kindness for a poor kid with a bountiful work ethic.
