California community buys out donuts so shop owner can spend time with sick wife

44231 ratings | 1778581 views
In our series, A More Perfect Union, we aim to show that what unites us as Americans is far greater than what divides us. In the small surf town of Seal Beach, California, donuts are suddenly selling fast. That's because customers of a mom-and-pop shop made it their mission to help the owners in their time of need.

This is a shout out to us as American's. We give a helping hand out. Never criticizing immigrants and helping out in a time of need. This is where we can use the term, "we the people." Thank you to all who made endless support for this hardworking family. God Bless!

They are a pillar of that community u can tell Also he's probably making at least a little more than before cause he's selling out all of the donuts every day he probably wasn't before.

What a great community, just shows if you do the simplest things in life as be nice to people then you are appreciated in ways beyond imaginable. Well done 👏🏼
Darren Cavazos (24 days ago)
I don't even like donuts but theirs actually look pretty damn good. Also, let me take time to point out that this os the PERFECT example of money meaning NOTHING in life. Time is everything. See how they don't care about money. They came to live the American Dream and god dammit if they aren't living it. My hat off to you, sir. I hope your wife is back to 100% and I wish the both of you MANY more happy, prosperous years together to come.
This is making me try to ask my parents to buy me donuts

Maybe CBS could learn a lesson and treat our President and his supporters with a little more compassion rather than spending all their time demonizing and attacking them.
Jeffery Tseng (1 month ago)
im not a big fan of this idea. although it is of kind heart i feel like more than half the donuts are wasted ... and couldve gone to people who actually like eating them instead of buying out inventory. but anyways, im glad that the community supports him so he can spend more time with his wife!

Chinese people are generally racist toward anyone who isn't Chinese. Chinese businesses only hire employees. Racial diversity only exists in delusional countries. China, Japan, South Korea and Singapore don't have racial diversity in their populations. It's time for Americans to be educated about real racism experienced in other countries.
