Grieving Mother Gets Mortgage Paid For in Touching Surprise

This is probably the most emotional thing you’ll see all day, if not this week.

Australia’s Kyle and Jackie O Show pledged its help to a woman named Michelle who’s trying to put the pieces of her life back together after her 19-year-old son died by paying her mortgage for six months as part of a “give back” campaign the show does.

The offer itself is pretty cool, but the way it was done is even more impressive. The hosts worked with Michelle’s daughter, Crystal, to get Michelle into the car and have the radio on at the exact moment they would reveal the big surprise.

The plan was executed perfectly and it didn’t take long for everyone to end up in tears.

Michelle’s son, Blaine, passed away in December in a freak work accident. Michelle is due to return to work, but, understandably, is still having problems moving, even as the bills keep coming in. As a result, Kyle and Jackie will also give Michelle $5,000 to go toward home improvements Blaine had been working on at the time of his death. You can also help if the story has moved you.

You can watch the entire video below, but be warned: your eyes are about to get more than just a little misty.
