A Good Samaritan in Grand Rapids, Michigan gave one single mom a very happy new year.


Fleming had recently lost one of her jobs as a visiting social worker and had spent everything on Christmas for her two young children.

Amy Kornoelje was there to get her son's headlight fixed and overheard Fleming making phone calls to borrow the money.

She said, "I said I don't know her story, I don't know what it is, but we're all here on this earth, and I feel like I need to help her out."

Centhia added, "I cried, it was tears of joy of course, but I cried like a little baby."

The dealership cut the bill, almost in half, and Kornoelje paid the 430 dollar balance.
