Loyal Burger King Worker Who Went Viral for His Goodie Bag Anniversary Gift Receives Over $275,000 on GoFundMe

Photo: GoFundMe

Kevin Ford, the Burger King employee who recently went viral for receiving a goodie bag after 27 years of loyalty to his job without missing a shift, has received over $275,000 in donations to a GoFundMe campaign set up for him by his daughter, Seryna Ford.

Seryna had this to say about her father’s story of loyalty in the GoFundMe:

Hi, My name is Seryna. The man in that video is my father. He has worked at his job for 27 years and yes, he has never missed a day of work. He originally began working at this job as a single father when he gained custody of me and my older sister 27 years ago. Then as our family grew and he remarried, he continued to work there because of the amazing health insurance that was provided through this employer because it was unionized. This got all four of his daughters through high school and college with full healthcare coverage.

My dad continues to work there, because though he does look young, he is coming up on retirement age and leaving would cost him his retirement. In no way are we asking for money or is he expecting any money but if anyone feels like blessing him he would love to visit his grandchildren.

Originally, the GoFundMe was set up by Seryna to help raise $200 for her father to go see his grandchildren. As of this writing, the GoFundMe campaign has raised $277,634, with even a $5,000 donation from actor David Spade, who wrote “Keep up the good work,” under his donation.

Kevin Ford has told TMZ that he plans on using the money raised to visit his family in Texas and purchase a new car.

Wingstop Introduces New Hot Honey Dry Rub

Yes saucy wings are great, but to be honest, I prefer my fried bird to be sans sauce. The crisp and crunch that makes fried food so loved diminishes once sauces get thrown into the mix. I like my fried chicken to have some fierce crunch action, which is why Wingstop’s new Hot Honey Dry Rub has my appetite all perked up.

The limited edition dry rub pairs the sweetness of honey with a rush of heat from cayenne pepper and ancho chili.

Wingstop’s Hot Honey Dry Rub is available now through the summer season at participating locations while supplies last.

Burger King Employee Trending After Receiving Goodie Bag for 27 Years of Perfect Attendance

An unidentified Burger King employee is trending right now due to a video of them receiving a goodie bag after working at the company for 27 years, with no days missed.

The viral video first appeared on Reddit’s ABoringDystopiaPage, as it showed the employee displaying to the camera a goodie bag he received as a reward for his nearly three decades of service at Burger King. Its contents were a movie ticket, a bag of Reese’s Pieces, a Starbucks tumbler, a lanyard, two pens, some keychains and two packs of Lifesavers.

Despite the worker appearing genuinely grateful for the reward, many on social media were upset at how modest it seemed in comparison to 27 years of perfect attendance at Burger King.

And though some assumed that the goodie bag gift was from his co-workers, the comments section was still fiercely opinionated, with thoughts ranging from being appalled at how Burger King allegedly treated this employee’s loyalty to admiration of the humble and thankful attitude the man showed.

One person tweeted,”We trying to figure out why after 27 years of loyalty you gifted one of your most loyal employees some back to school supplies.”

Another chimed in, “People are talking down on him, it’s weird. Some people really don’t need much in life and y’all forget it was only a few hundred years ago where all we did was hunt and gather.”

McDonald’s is Offering a Free Sprite on the First Day of Summer

To me, sipping some McDonald’s Sprite tastes like the sound of either hot grease frying up some chicken, a thousand marbles spilling out of a glass jar or crumpling up aluminum foil into a ball.

Fans of McDonald’s Sprite also have some wild descriptions of how it tastes, from saying it’s like the sound of a zipper closing a jacket to a dog growling, or even TV static. Such responses have intrigued McDonald’s, now encouraging fans to share what sound their Sprite from McDonald’s tastes like on social media.

That’s why on June 21, the first day of summer, fans can get a FREE any-size Sprite when they spend $1 on the McDonald’s App. The offer is valid for one time and at participating McDonald’s locations.

What tastes better than the sound of peeling duct tape? When it’s free.
