Nearly $400K Has Been Raised For A Burger King Employee After Going Viral For Receiving A Goody Bag For 27 Years Of Perfect Attendance

Burger King employee Kevin Ford celebrated 27 years of perfect attendance earlier this year. A video of Ford celebrating his milestone went viral. Unfortunately, it didn’t gain views praising an elaborate setup thanking him for his dedication, but for a lack thereof. The 54-year-old is a longtime Las Vegas McCarran International Airport Burger King staff member.

The video featured Ford receiving a bag filled with a movie ticket, candy, a Starbucks cup, a lanyard, two pens and two keychains for his service. Although he seemed grateful, the millions of people who saw the video thought the gesture didn’t measure up.

Ford’s humble attitude gained national attention. Shortly after, he received a more appropriate gift for his loyalty. His daughter, Seryna Ford, started a GoFundMe campaign detailing that Ford was more than just a great employee. The amount quickly rose to $200K, and as the story of the gracious employee spread, the account reached almost $400K!

On the fundraising page, Ford’s daughter proudly gave some background on her father and said he “began working at this job as a single father when he gained custody of me and my older sister 27 years ago.”

She added that her father stayed at Burger King because “it provided great health insurance.” The benefits allowed him to get his four daughters through high school and college.
