William Preston, a 13-year-old boy from Nevada, sold his X-Box and did different kinds of work to collect money to buy a car for his mother.
The young boy realized that his mother was having a hard time taking care of him and his siblings without a car. William said that he had seen how children help their parents in different ways and he wanted to surprise his mother too. He saw a 1999 Chevrolet Metro on a Facebook advert and decided to buy it.
He asked the woman, who was selling the car if he could trade the car or earn it. As the oldest boy in his family, he managed to buy a car for his mother.

When William gave the present to his mother, she had tears in her eyes. She remained speechless. Krystal, William`s mother, said that she was very proud of her child and that there were no words to express her gratitude.
After some time, William and his family needed financial support. Her mother created a GoFundMe page and said that Williams was a unique child since he was born. He was born with a severe case of bilateral clubfoot. He had several surgeries on his legs. However, he always wanted to help other people. He also had ADHD.
He did all kinds of work and wanted to learn new trades. He was even awarded a week trip to the city to help around cleaning the streets and the yards. She added that she was very proud of him. Her family was going through a hard time and she would be grateful to anyone who could help her. People from all over the world raised $13.000 to help them. Will’s mom thanked everyone who helped and is currently looking for the best doctors to help her son.
The family deserves a better future, and we couldn’t be happier for them.
