  • Mum was given $50 by a stranger during a grocery shop 
  • The single mum was moved to tears by the gesture 

A struggling single mum was moved to tears after a generous stranger gave her $50 to do her back-to-school shopping.

While the Queensland woman was picking up some groceries ahead of the school term starting again she was carefully adding everything up and checking the price of each item so she didn’t go over budget. 

A young girl came up to her and handed her a $50 saying it was a gift from her mum. 

Completely taken aback by the unexpected gesture, she thought the girl was mistaken but started ‘shaking and crying’ when she realised she was in fact the correct recipient of the out-of-the-blue gift. 

Hundreds were touched by the stranger’s ‘incredible’ act of kindness as more families are feeling the pressure with skyrocketing costs of living.

A single mum was moved to tears after a generous stranger gave her $50 to go towards her back to school shopping as she was struggling to stick to her shoestring budget

‘I had the most incredible thing happen to me today. I’m in Woolies Riverlink in Ipswich QLD getting a few things for back to school and I’m adding my shopping up on my calculator and checking the price of EVERYTHING,’ the mum wrote in a Facebook post. 

‘Next a lovely little girl came up to me handing me a $50 and said ‘My mummy wants to give you a gift’, I said ‘Thank you, have the wrong person, honey’.’

The young girl assured the woman she was the person her mum wanted to give the $50 to and ran off before she could say anything else.  

‘I looked up at her mum shaking and in tears and she gave me a nod and a thumbs up,’ the woman said.

‘Made me cry this lovely Sunday morning. Always gives hope to know there are some really wonderful people out there,’ she said.
