Young Man Saves Up To Pay Off His Mom’s Mortgage
May 1, 2013

With Mother's Day coming up in less than two weeks (it's Sunday, May 12), we thought this video could serve as inspiration.

Although, don't feel you have to go as far as this young man.

In the video, he talks about how much respect he has for his mother and how thankful he is for everything she's done for him.

So, on his own birthday, he decides to give his mom a present.

After years of two and a half years of saving, he surprises her by paying off her mortgage because he wanted to do right by a very special woman.

The video is from iProjectAtlas.
