Paying it Forward! They've passed the $380,000 mark!!!
This info is from Kate's GoFundMe.com page:
"Driving into Philly one night, I made the mistake of thinking that I would be able to make it all the way down I- 95 with my gas light on. Needless to say, I was wrong. I never ran out of gas before, and my heart was beating out of my chest. I pulled over as far as I could, and got out of the car to head to the nearest gas station."
She continues her story, "That’s when I met Johnny. Johnny sits on the side of the road every day, holding a sign. He saw me pull over and knew something was wrong. He told me to get back in the car and lock the doors. A few minutes later, he comes back with a red gas can. Using his last 20 dollars to make sure I could get home safe."
The story has become so popular that Kate is being interviewed by news outlets like the BBC and Good Morning America!
