An amazing thing has happened in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Josette Duran was packing lunch for her son Dylan every day, until one day, Dylan asked if she could pack another.
Josette was confused at first: was Dylan not getting full from the lunches she was providing him? What caused this sudden surge of appetite?
But soon, she realized the extra lunch wasn’t for him; it was for his friend, who only had lunch money for a single fruit cup.
Josette learned that Dylan’s friend’s mom was a single mother who had recently been laid off from her job. This situation resonated with Josette, who herself had been homeless and had to live in her car with her son.
The boy’s mother found out what Josette has been doing for her son, so when she got a job, she asked Josette to accept the $400, adding that it’s not enough to thank her for her kind gesture and to pay for all the meals. Josette refused. Instead, this inspired her to do something even bigger.
