This past May, Kevin was pleasantly surprised: Burger King sent him a gift package to thank him for what he had accomplished in more than 20 years working for their company. In fact, few can boast of never claiming a sick day in their life. But his social video, while touched by his discovery of what he was given, did not excite the web world. The video went viral, and users were blown away by the views and comments on what was posted. Although he showed great enthusiasm and a touch of passion, people were definitely not excited. “But how can you serve only sweets to such a person?” A user wrote, which was soon followed by several others, outraged by the company’s behaviour.

For days, nothing else was said in the States, making Kevin’s story a real case. At that point, the model worker’s daughter walked in and decided to open a GoFundMe fundraiser because so many people were willing to help the man. Help that, as the days and months passed, took on unexpected proportions. In fact, three months later, the web world has raised over €400,000 for the man, thanks to the thousands and thousands of donations that will allow Kevin to fully enjoy his retirement. “You really deserve it, you are a very honest and good man,” wrote one user who said she was almost touched by people’s reactions. But most surprising was the protagonist who, however, has no intention of giving up his job: “I thank everyone for the unexpected and unnecessary support you have given me. I really appreciate this money and I never expected it, as I uploaded a video on TikTok. I was really happy with what I received, because every gift is something to be accepted with pleasure. I will need this money for my children’s retirement and university, but until then I will continue to work as always, with the same passion and dedication.”
