This is the true story of a 16-year-old girl with a heart of gold. After watching her mom’s daily struggle to care for her family, she decided to do something.
But she never even dreamed her efforts would turn out like this…
Sixteen-year-old Maiya James lives with her mother and sister in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her sister, Mariah, is disabled and needs round-the-clock care. Maiya’s mother is single and takes care of her and Mariah as well as she can. She feeds them, clothes them, and provides them with a loving home.
In addition, she brings Mariah to the hospital for regular medical examinations.
But one day, something unfortunate happened—the family car broke down.
Maiya’s mom couldn’t bring Mariah to the hospital anymore—and she didn’t have money to get the car fixed.
So Maiya decided to try and help her mom. She searched online for auto repair shops and finally found one nearby. She knew that her mom didn’t have any money, so she wrote the the shop a letter telling them about her situation.
When the staff of Dani’s Auto read Maiya’s letter, they were moved. Joe and Dani Levi decided to help the family, even though they wouldn’t get any money in return.
The Levis soon showed up at Maiya’s door with some surprising news.
Maiya was overjoyed that they had read her letter. But it soon became apparent that Joe and Dani didn’t have any plans to fix the car.
Instead, they gave the family a brand new van.
Maiya’s mother broke down in tears when she realized what was happening. Watch her reaction in this heartwarming video:
Joe and Danielle really show what humanity looks like. They had the opportunity to help this family and did—without getting any money for it. If everyone were this kind, the world would be a much better place.
