It started like any other day at work for Jayden Brammeier Vasquez at the Foot Locker store in the ViaPort Florida Mall in Lake County, Florida. But when 10-year-old Jonas Nielsen came in to try on a pair of sneakers, the 18-year-old decided to help him get them.
Jonas told Jayden he had never had a pair of shoes from that store before, as he tried on a pair of Air Jordan 1’s. And when his mom saw what he was doing, she told him they were not going to buy the shoes. She says she’s not sure why she did it, but she wanted to help Jonas get those shoes, so she asked his mom if she could buy them for him. To make it even more special, it was the boy’s tenth birthday.
And Jonas’ mom shared the story of the random act of kindness on social media, getting the attention of Lake County leaders, who recognized this young lady for her generous gesture. "It's a really great feeling to know that I've inspired people," Jayden says.
