LEXINGTON, Mass. (WCVB) -- Just around the corner from the holiday season, Allison Moran said her faith in people and their kindness is stronger than ever.

A total stranger has stepped forward to pay off her holiday bills.

Moran was shocked and forever grateful.

According to WCVB, the Massachusetts mother of 6-year-old twins and a 20-month-old admits money has been tight, but she was still determined to make Christmas special.

The mother put several hundreds worth of gifts on layaway at her local Walmart, hoping to be able to pay them off in time for Christmas.

Now she won’t have to.

An anonymous donor had paid her balance in full.

It’s a small gesture that is about so much more than money.

“I hope people continue to pay it forward for people because you never know when you’ll need the extra help and I will definitely pay it forward,” she said. “It just says that they’re really are still really good people out there.”
