10-Year-Old Collects Money for a Vacation – Then the Truth About What He Actually Did With It Comes Out

One young boy decides to use all his savings for a thoughtful gift for a friend instead of a family vacation.

When Vaughn Preston first met his favourite gas station attendant Tony Antonio, Vaughn was feeling sick and Tony was able to make him laugh in minutes. Ever since then, Vaughn would look out for Tony whenever his family visited that Caltex Gas Station near their home in Gillitts, South Africa.

“Tony always takes the time to talk to Vaughn about the various bikes we haul to Giba and back and listens so obligingly to him as he chatters away,” Vaughn’s mother Mandy wrote on Facebook.

The friendship continued for two months before Tony asked Vaughn and his family to look out for a reasonably priced bicycle for Tony to purchase for himself. Vaughn promised to find him one.

Not only did Vaughn plan to find Tony a bike, but he also planned to buy it for him. He went around the house collecting silver money for an alleged “holiday.”

“One night he came to me and asked if I really wanted a holiday and upon asking why he said he would rather put his savings towards helping Tony get his bike,” wrote Mandy. “And so today, we cracked open the piggy bank and took all the silvers to Game where he bought his friend a bicycle.”
