Shirley Ratliff gets new car-NewsVideo

Shirley Ratliff, who always has a smile for every customer, takes three buses to get to her job opening a Raleigh, North Carolina bagel shop at 5 a.m. each day. Recently her customers showered her with appreciation for that dedication.

The 47-year-old has aspired to owning a car but couldn’t save enough money in recent years, after a cancer diagnosis a few years ago and other financial setbacks.

20 customers calling themselves “Shirley’s Fan Club” recently gave her a 1992 Buick LeSabre, a gift she called the “best Christmas present ever”.

“When I asked [people] to contribute, they didn’t even blink,” David Burton told “They said, ‘How much do you want?’ And they said they would give $100, $200.”

They even covered tax and insurance for her.
