13-Year-old Boy Trades His Xbox And Does Yard Work To Buy Mom A Car After She Struggled For Transportation

It is not common for 13-year-old’s to buy cars, leave alone for their parents.

But one son saw his mother’s need and decided to do something tremendous about it.

William Preston did what any other 13 year old would have not been able to do, he bought his mother, Krystal Pearson, a car.

Krystal is a single mother of three children in Fenley, Nevada and due to an “unfortunate situation,” she’s been struggling to make ends meet and did not have any means of transportation.

William was inspired to help his mother out after watching some YouTube videos of people gifting cars to their mothers.

He then saw an ad by a lady wanting to sell her 1999 Toyota Metro for a cheap price on Facebook. William contacted the woman and asked if he could trade in his Xbox, along with some cash he had made cleaning houses in the community and doing yard work.

The woman accepted the deal after some negotiation, she then drove the car to William’s house.

When William led his mother out to the driveway, she could not believe her ears when he told her he had bought her a car.

She couldn’t control her emotions seeing the Toyota in her driveway. She said “I lost it, I bawled so bad, I was just like, ‘There’s no way.’ What 13-year-old do you know buys their mom a car? I don’t know any, never heard of any, I can’t even express it, like there’s no words that can express my gratitude and how proud I am.”

I have no words right now that can express how I am feeling at this moment. I'm in complete shock … The last couple…

William’s kindness and love for his mother was way bigger than anything, even his Xbox, and has taught us a lesson or two about kindness and love being only 13-years-old.
