FedEx Driver Buys New Basketball Goal For Boy In Random Act Of Kindness


A mother in Ohio shared a heartwarming story with photos to Facebook after her local FedEx driver left unexpected gifts for her son.

Coledo Wheeler said her FedEx driver, who only revealed her name as Aubrey, bought her son, Elijah, a brand new basketball and basketball hoop, along with a touching note.

“I just wanted you and your son to have the best hoop that’ll grow with him and all his friends! It’s wonderful that you guys shoot hoops with him,” the note read.

“I’m really not sure where to begin. Dan and I came home from working. I didn’t even see a new basketball hoop for Elijah in the yard. I just thought it was his regular hoop. Which was in really rough shape but still usable.

As I walked up on the porch I noticed the ball and the instruction manual to the hoop. I didn’t know where either came from. I came in I sat down and started to read the two letters attached.

I instantly started crying. Come to find out a random act of kindness had happen at our home.

I finally read the small print in the corner wondering who Aubrey was. I then realized that it was our female FedEx truck driver that delivers in our area. She has come around here when Eli and his friends would be playing basketball. Or Dan and I out shooting some hoops with him.

She saw Eli cutting the grass one day. Told us it was awesome to start them young. Elijah did not know until he came home from his dad’s we kept this a secret. We showed him and told him who it came from. He knew exactly who Aubrey was. He started crying. Instantly he was ready to play some basketball needless to say. LOL.

What an awesome amazing thing that she did for him out of pure kindness. There are very much still good people in the world. I’m going to have Elijah write her a letter and also get her a thank you card for the next time that we see her come through.

Thank you Aubrey. You made his day. Can’t wait to see you come thru, I owe you a world of thanks.”

Wheeler also added an update to her original post that stated Aubrey returned once more with sandbags to fill the hoop to weigh it down.

“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.. God bless you Aubrey,” her post concluded.
