BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — It was a surprise for a mother and daughter who otherwise would have had nothing this Christmas.
Jennifer Muscato and her son delivered a pile of gifts to Larisha McMullen and her daughter Jaesona Friday morning.
McMullen said, “We had a couple little issues so we lost everything we had and I just appreciate everything ya’ll going to make me cry, oh my gosh. I just appreciate it, thank you.”
It’s an act of kindness from a stranger that was sparked by another act of kindness.
Muscato said, “I found a Christmas card on my desk last year from someone to this day I don’t know who gave it to me and it was a gift card to buy presents because I was going through a hard time. The only thing they wanted from me was that I pay it forward in the future.”
Muscato didn’t have enough money herself to buy the gifts, so she started a GoFund me Page and raised $165.
She began searching for a family in need and found the McMullens through the Buffalo School District.
McMullen said, “There are a lot of people that don’t have anything and there are a lot of kids that can’t receive this stuff. It’s just the thought that someone thought about us and I just want to hug you, I appreciate everything.”
The McMullens now plan to pay it forward when they can.
