  • If this video doesn't make you cry, you need to do some reevaluating. Check out this feel-good video of one coffee shop employee getting the surprise of a lifetime.

    Kathryn has been working at Elon University’s coffee shop for over 10 years with many shifts lasting until 2-3am. During one late night shift, Kathryn was chatting with 2 students about how she had always dreamed of going to Disney World with her grandkids, but knew she could never save enough money. The students,Taylor Zisholtz and Lucy Smith-Williams, decided to try and make Kathryn’s dream come true.

  • The girls started a GoFundMe page asking the local community to donate. Their goal was to raise $6,500 to send Kathryn and her family to Disney World. In less than three weeks the page had exceeded that goal. One donation even came from a GoFundMe employee who loved the idea and donated $1,000.

    The university’s student news program, Elon Local News, captured the big reveal on camera and it is PRICELESS. (Even better, her grandson turns 6 this week and will be getting the best birthday surprise ever!)
