When a mom posted a Facebook status about how great her kids are, she had no idea how a stranger would react.
Jeneca Krump hit some hard times financially after her rent was raised and it was going to hurt her and her thee kids' Halloween plans. But after a conversation about it where the kids were so sweet and understanding, she posted on Facebook to show them some love, Pop Sugar reports.
"I have to say I have great kids," Krump said in a Facebook post. "We recently got our rent raised 17 percent. I had to have a conversation with my kids about it and they said it wouldn't be a big deal if they didn't get pumpkins this year or a Halloween costume. . . . They didn't whine or complain."
One afternooon, Krump and her three kids came home to find three pumpkins, a carving kit, candles, candy and gift cards to the grocery store. Touched by an anonymous stranger's generous and kind actions, she shared her story with local news man, Frank Somerville on Facebook.
"This was done anonymously. I am still in disbelief," Krump said. "To care and give so that kids could celebrate Halloween like all the other kids and then go even further with gift cards for food, my heart is bursting. I just want them to know how appreciative our family is. I can't wait to pay it forward."
“My 12 year old, was so excited he carried everything in by himself! My 9 year laid down next to the pumpkins for about 15 minutes dreaming about his design.
And I'm waiting for my 14 year old to get home. She's artistic and loves carving pumpkins so I know she's going to be stoked!”
She also said she's incredibly grateful and cannot wait to pay it forward.
