Heartbreaking Reason New Mexico Boy Asks Mom For Two Lunches
A New Mexico mother has gone viral after her son asked her to make him two lunches for school. The reason is heartbreaking and her actions will make you smile.
An Albuquerque mother has gone viral after sharing with the world a good deed she did for those in need of a little help at her son's school.
At the beginning of the school year, Josette Duran's son asked his mother to make him two lunches for school. She asked him if he was still hungry and he told her this,
No mom, it’s for this boy. He only eats a fruit cup for lunch can you make him lunch too? I don’t think he has lunch money.
Josette found out that Dylan's friend's mother was a single mom who recently lost her job. Josette was touched by her son's request and happily obliged. Josette also understood what this mother was going through. Only a few years ago, she herself was homeless and living in her car. She wanted to help another mother in a rough spot.
After some time packing both lunches, Josette got a call from the school's principal asking her to have a meeting. When she arrived, the little's boy's mother was there and knew she had been feeding her son. The woman told Josette,
“I know this isn’t much, but I just got a job, and I know you’ve been feeding my son."
She tried to give Josette money for the food she had been giving him. Instead of taking the money, Josette turned around and helped raise $400 with the help of the volleyball team she coaches. They took that money and paid off all past due lunch accounts at the school. Now thanks to the kindness of Josette, no kid has to go hungry.
Josette truly shows how one person can make a difference. And safe to say she is raising a pretty good kid too.
