Nicholas stepped in and paid for Sandra and her newborn baby’s travel when he saw the bus driver order them to get off since they didn’t have enough money for the price. Sandra responded to the little boy’s charity by doing something unexpected a few days later after escaping her vi-olent husband, Josh, Sandra Anderson had to spend the night at her friend Bethany’s house in Michigan.
Mrs. Anderson, Sandra’s mother had often warned her about Josh, but she was young and careless at the time, and she only learned how awful he was after they married.
Mrs. Anderson stayed in the same town as Bethany, but Sandra lacked the courage to continue to face her mother after the bru-tality with which her marriage had ended—at least not until she received a phone call early the next morning alerting her that her mother had suffered a heart att-ack and was being brought to the ho-spital. The mom covered her daughter Ava in a blanket and ran out the door as she hung up the phone, leaving her wallet behind after numerous fruitless attempts to be accepted by Uber or persuade a taxi driver to give her a ride, she had to travel to the bus stop near Bethany’s house.
She did, however, arrive at the bus stop just as the bus was about to depart. She raced inside the bus to keep herself and Ava warm and was about to sit down when the driver unexpectedly halted her. “Please accept my apologies, ma’am. You haven’t paid your fare!” “Excuse me, just a minute,” she apologized. Sandra apologized and went hunting for her handbag, but she noticed her wallet was missing when she reached inside her bag. Sandra looked through her pockets to see if she had any money, but they were similarly empty. Meanwhile, the bus driver was becoming increasingly irritated. “Could you just move along? Because it’s snowing, the roads are icy, and I can’t drive quickly “he asserted vehemently.
Sandra raised her head from her purse. “I’m sorry, but I forgot to bring my purse.” The bus driver gave her a stern look, and said, “I’m sorry I won’t be able to accommodate you. GET OFF THE BUS NOW!” “No, please!” Sandra pleaded. “I have a baby with me, and it’s freezing. Plus, my mother has been ho-spitalized. I promise that once I get to the hospital, I’ll have someone pay you.” The driver b-urst out laughing. “Nice effort, woman, but many people have made up tales like that and avoided paying the fee. I’m not a knucklehead!” Sandra got off the bus dejectedly, picking up her bag from the seat and bracing herself for the cold. But then she was interrupted by a voice. “I’ll pay for her bus ticket. Please don’t tell them to leave.” Sandra looked around to see an unkempt young man standing there. “Please, ma’am, come in. The fare will be paid by me.”
Sandra took a seat and said, “Thank you, kid.” “What’s your name, by the way?” “My name is Nicholas!” said the youngster joyfully. “You’re not required to thank me. My mother believes that if you have the ability to help someone, you should!” “Your mother is correct, Nicholas,” Sandra remarked, smiling. “How come you’re traveling alone?” The child said, “Oh, I’m on my way back from my grandmother’s place.” “Mom instructed me to give her medicine since she was unwell. My stop appears to be approaching, so I’ll exit now. Goodbye!”
“Wait a minute, Nicholas!” Sandra expressed her thoughts. “Could you please provide me with your address? I’d like to meet your mother and express my gratitude to her.” “Sure!” Nicholas grinned and walked a-way after giving their address. Sandra went to the address Nicholas provided her the next day, and her heart fell when she saw a little, dilapidated two-room house. Sandra noticed a fragile woman emerge from the home. She wasn’t that elderly, but the dark bags under her eyes and hollowed cheeks showed she was struggling.
Sandra was already worried by Nicholas’ condition, but when she discovered that Nicholas’ father had ab-andoned them when his mother became pregnant, she couldn’t help but step in.
Sandra set up a GoFundMe page to gather funds for the mother and boy that night at home, and then solicited the help of her friend Bethany, a popular blogger with millions of Instagram followers. Bethany went live on her page, explaining Nicholas and his mother’s tale, and she received not just a large number of helping hands, but also $1 million in just three days! Furthermore, the money continued to flow even after that. Sandra couldn’t stop sobbing as she handed over the money to Nicholas’ mother. Thankfully, with that money, she and her son were able to finally relocate to a nicer residence, and Nicholas, who had never been able to get an education, was now able to finish his education.
