A 13-year-old Nevada teen single-handedly destroyed the stereotype of typical adolescent behaviour by trading in his video game system and getting his hands dirty in exchange for a car, which he then gave to his single mother as a surprise.
As KOLO reports, William Preston’s family was going through a rough patch in life. His mother was trying to provide for her three kids and three dogs, making ends meet all without a vehicle.
“I saw on YouTube where people get their mom a car and then surprise her with it,” the young man told the news station. “I wanted to do that.”
The teen was already making a little bit of extra cash by doing yard and housework for neighbours in his community, but he explained to KOLO that he was surfing through Facebook one day and noticed a woman was selling a 1999 Chevrolet Metro.
