Stories like this remind us all just why the internet can be an incredible tool. After a TikTok video went viral showing 82-year-old widow, Butch Marion, working as a Walmart Cashier, a fundraiser was set up to help the elderly man retire.
TikToker Rory McCarty went through Butch's line at Walmart and took a quick video to show him working and posted it to TikTok. He had no idea the reaction it would receive! The video racked up millions of views and Rory decided to set up a fundraiser to help the man retire.
The fundraiser was an incredible success, raising over $118k for the Navy vet to retire.
Rory then showed up at Butch's job to surprise him with the check, which after GoFundMe fees, came to $108,682.
Marion said he’s going to pay off his bills and visit his daughters and grandchildren in Florida for the first time in years. How awesome!
