A Customer Raised THOUSANDS For This Amazing Chik Fil A Employee. What He Did With The Money Is Absolutely Wonderful!
There’s something to be said for dedication to your work. Not hard work, that’s a little bit different. I’m talking about dedication. The next time you think that you are dedicated to your job, for whatever reason; this young man has us all beat.
The vast majority of us hope to get out of working too hard around the holidays— but not one Indianapolis teenager, who showed up to work post-car accident so that he could feed the homeless on Christmas.
Jakeem Tyler was photographed by customer Cameron Nelson working the register at Chick-fil-A while wearing a constricting neck brace and arm sling. Nelson wanted to help, so he set up a GoFundMe (which has since gone viral) in Jakeem’s name.
Check it out, via Daily Mail: Nelson said in a Facebook post: I stopped at Chick-fil-A & decided to go in cause the drive-thru was too long, and I saw this young man working with a neck brace & a sling. We sneeze too hard & decide to call in, but he’s workin like nothing’s wrong.
When I placed my order, I asked him what happened… he said he was involved in a car accident, but he was working cause he needs the money & also wants to feed the homeless for Christmas & needs the cash… maybe I was supposed to go in there. I think I may kick down a hundred or two on payday to help him out… he’s definitely doin it for a great cause & I was amazed he’s still workin despite his condition.
The page had raised $45,000 as of this morning and money is still rolling in.
