Kansas City, MO, United States (4E) - A man helped a female Popeye's employee to go back to school by raising funds for her online via GoFundMe.
The man and the employee are both from Kansas City in Missouri. The man, identified as Don Carter, waited for his dinner at the drive-thru window of the fast food. He then struck a conversation with the woman manning the window. The conversation suddenly touched on the subject of the Popeye's employee telling Carter she wanted to earn a degree.
Carter recounted, "I said, 'Oh, go back to school for what? 'Tbe a nurse,' [she said]. And I was like, 'What kind of nurse?' And she said 'It doesn't even matter.'" The man said he saw a spark and the potential in the employee. He then drove home and said while he ate his dinner, he could not stop thinking about the female employee and how he can help her.
The man did some research on the matter and found a certified nurse assistant license cost $1,500. Carter said he thought that was possible because he had more than 1,300 friends. He created a GoFundMe page for his project and asked 300 of his friends to donate $5 each.
He then woke up the next morning and saw the donations surpassed the $1,500 goal. He raised more than $3, 785 in total. Carter said a person taking the risk of doing something good for somebody else is where life has its joy. He added if people started to treat each other that way it would be a better place to live in.
Carter said the employee has no idea about the funding. He will tell her about it soon but he did not reveal any of his plans yet.
