A New Mexico mother's act of kindness is going viral.

A New Mexico mother's act of kindness is going viral.

It all started when Josette Duran's son asked her to start packing him two lunches every day.

What she did not know, was that the extra lunch was for a classmate whose own mother had lost her job.

That woman offered to pay Duran back for all those lunches she made, but Duran says she cannot accept the money.

"She says, "Know this isn't much, but I just got a job and I know you've been feeding my son."

"This hits home to me because a few years ago, me and my son were homeless. I was living in my car, I was washing him in bathrooms, and we didn't have food," said Duran.

Other people pitched in and raised more than 400 dollars.

Duran took that money to her son's school cafeteria and paid off all the past due accounts, so no more students have to worry about whether they will have lunch or not.
