A 13-year-old Nevada boy bought a car for his struggling single mother of three kids who had no transportation, a local TV station reported.
William Preston, 13, of Fernley, Nevada, saw a cheap Chevrolet Metro posted for sale on Facebook and arranged with the seller to trade his Xbox and labor for the vehicle.
William Preston got the idea from a YouTube video about kids buying their mom a car, according to KOLO 8 News Now.
Soon afterward, he saw a white Chevrolet Metro posted for sale on Facebook.
He messaged the seller asking if he could trade his Xbox or work for the car. The woman initially refused but then changed her mind.
William and the seller arranged for her to drive the car to the Preston family home to surprise his mother, Krystal.
“Mom, I got you a car,” the boy announced.
“No, you didn’t,” was her reaction.
