Detroit Tigers Surprise a Single Mom With $50,000, Gifts

Linita Edge, a Detroit traffic controller and single mother of two who recently lost her husband, received a life-changing surprise from social media influencer Zachery Dereniowski and the Detroit Tigers. Dereniowski approached Edge during her duty, handed her a dollar with a note, and invited her to join him at a Tigers game. Overwhelmed with joy, Edge was granted permission to leave her post and experienced a series of surprises, including tickets to the game, a postgame fireworks show, $500, and a GoFundMe campaign that raised over $52,000. The Detroit Tigers also added to the generosity by offering additional gifts. Edge's emotional reaction and gratitude expressed the profound impact these acts of kindness had on her life.
