7-Eleven stores traditionally celebrate July 11th by giving away free slurpees to all of their customers—but one lucky baby is being gifted much more than that.
A Missouri infant named J’Aime Brown is being featured on national news outlets after she was born on July 11th at exactly 7:11PM weighing 7 pounds and 11 ounces.
Her parents, Rachel Langford and Johntez Brown from St. Louis, were so startled by the coincidence, they immediately made plans to tell 7-Eleven staffers about their baby daughter’s serendipitous birth.
One week after company officials learned of J’Aime’s birthday, they told reporters that they would be making a donation to the little girl’s college fund.
“After catching wind of the incredible news, 7-Eleven decided to pledge $7,111 to the newborn’s college fund to honor her entry to the world,” 7-Eleven representatives told USA Today.
“Along with this pledge, the brand has also provided the family with diapers, 7-Eleven onesies, and other newborn goodies to help her parents along the way,” they added.
Needless to say, Langford and Brown were delighted to hear the news.
“It’s hard for anybody to even get a trust fund for their children. To get a blessing like that, it just helps a lot,” Langford told CNN.
