A 13-year-old boy in Nevada is warming hearts after selling his Xbox and taking on extra work to buy his single mom a car.

Krystal Preston has been struggling to keep her small family afloat and not having their own transportation has made things harder.

William Preston wanted to do something special for his mom, who has worked tirelessly to look after him and his two siblings, and drew inspiration from the kindness of others online.

"I saw on YouTube where people get their mom a car and then surprise her with it," William told KOLO. "I wanted to do that."

He managed to find an affordable 1999 Chevrolet Metro listed for sale on Facebook and immediately contacted the seller, a local woman, asking if he could trade in his Xbox and work off the rest.

The owner was initially reluctant but after giving it some thought, struck up a deal with William, the New York Post noted. Krystal was stunned when her son said he had bought her a car.

"I lost it, I bawled, I was just like, there's no way," Krystal said, according to CBN News. "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."

It was not long before their story caught the public's attention. A GoFundMe Page set up by Krystal in a bid to raise funds to help her struggling family has received $11,105 in donations and they continue to pour in.

"William helped me his mom in a way that is unremarkable and so inspiring and loving," Krystal wrote on the page. "I'm very proud of him."
