A 13-year-old boy in Nevada bought his single mother a car by trading his Xbox and doing yard work to earn money.
Krystal Preston, the single mother of three children, was having a difficult time recently making ends meet with no car. That’s where her oldest son, William Rabillo, stepped in.
“At my low point, here comes my son,” Preston said. “Everybody goes through ro-ugh pa-tches in life, but there’s good that can come from any situation as long as somebody with a heart does it.”
William came across a woman selling a 1999 white Chevy Metro on Facebook and reached out to ask about buying it.
“It was really che-ap so I asked if I could trade the Xbox or earn it,” William told local ABC affiliate KOLO. “At first she said no, but then she thought about it and she said yes.”
The teen works around the neighborhood mowing lawns, cleaning yards, and other odd jobs and decided he wanted to surprise his mom and help her out. “I saw people on YouTube and they get their mom a car,” William said. “I wanted to do it.” Preston thought her son was out doing work one day recently when he came home and told her the news.
She didn’t believe him until he took her outside and the seller was waiting to drive them to her house. When they arrived, William told her “Mom, that’s your car.” “I lost it. I ba-wled so bad,” Preston said. “I was just like ‘There’s no way.’”The owner handed Preston the keys and paperwork and the car started right up, she said.
“What 13-year-old do you know who buys their mom a car? I don’t know any,” Preston told KOLO. “I can’t express it.There are no words that can express my gratitude and how proud I am.”
