8-Year-Old Helps His Favorite Waffle House Worker To Buy a Family Car

An 8 year old Arkansas boy showed his big heart with a selfless act on behalf of his favorite Waffle House worker. Kayzen formed an unlikely friendship with the waitstaff at a local Waffle House in the Little Rock area, where he frequently has breakfast. In fact, he’s become good friends with his favorite waiter, Devonte. According to Kayzen’s mother Vittoria Hunter, Devonte always gives Kayzen a "high five" when he comes in and the two exchange life updates during the boy’s visits. After Kayzen learned about what Devonte had been dealing with lately, he came up with an idea to help his Waffle House friend.

Devonte has two little girls and a wife. Since he doesn't have a car of his own, he has to walk or get a ride from someone else to get to work every day. His family had to live out of a motel when the house he was renting was found to be rat infested. The money he was saving for an affordable car paid for the room.

Kayzen and Hunter set up a GoFundMe campaign with a goal of $5,000. “Devonte is one of the most joyous and positive people you’ve ever met!! He always greets us with the biggest smile,” Kayzen wrote. “We are now helping him get into a clean rental property and want to help him even more by raising funds so he has a reliable vehicle to drive his family and get to and from work.”

The story touched people so much that the campaign has now raised over $30,000, surpassing its original target and likely ensuring Devonte's peace of mind after a very tough period. In the meantime, several people have commended the boy's spirit and desire to help with whatever tools he has at hand as an 8-year-old. One donator named Shawna Ross wrote, “This is the definition of community. You'll be a leader, no doubt, Kayzen.”
