RENO, Nev. - A 13-year-old in Nevada earned enough money by doing yard work and trading his Xbox to surprise his mother with a car.

"He was tired of seeing me cry," said Krystal Preston.

Preston lives as a single mom in Nevada with her three kids and three dogs.

The family is recently starting life over from scratch. That's when her oldest son, William, step up.

"At my low point, here comes my son. Everybody goes through rough patches in their life, but there's good that can come from any situation as long as somebody with a heart does it," said Preston.

Outside of school, William does yard and housework for people in the community to make a little extra money.

"I saw people on Youtube where they get their mom a car and then surprise their mom with that car, and then I wanted to do that," said William.

He then turned to Facebook where he saw a woman was selling a white Chevy Metro.

"It was really cheap so I asked her if I could trade it for my Xbox or earn it, and at first she said no, and then she thought about it, and then she said yes," William explained.

William's quest then became a reality.

"'Mom, I got you a car,' and then she said, 'No you didn't,' and then I said, 'I did,' and she didn't believe me. She picked us up and we went to her house, and then I said, 'Mom, there's your car," described William.

"I lost it, I bawled so bad, I was just like, 'there's no way.' What 13-year-old do you know buys their mom a car? I don't know any, never heard of any," said Preston.

She was in awe of what her son had done for her.

"I can't even express it, like there's no words that can express my gratitude and how proud I am," she said.


A son's selfless deed proving that age is simply just a number, and you can make a difference at any time.
