Comedian David Spade donates $5,000 to viral Burger King employee – ‘Keep up the good work’
For his part, Kevin set the internet on fire when he showed the following puny bag he received despite not being absent from work in 27 years. In which clip Here we can see Kevin holding a goodie bag. And since he had given so much to the company, it didn’t go down very well.
But when Kevin’s daughter set one up GoFundMeso that he could visit his grandchildren in Texas, things began to change massively. And it had caught Dave’s attention. As a result, the comedian decided to donate $5,000 of his own money.
In the process, he sent Kevin a private DM to thank him for his hard work. In his comments, Dave said: “Keep it up, 27 years” to which Kevin replied: “I can’t believe this. Thank you for even watching the video. Love you my brother. Love and God’s blessings.”
And it’s only gotten better since then. So far, the fundraiser has raised around $39,000 and counting. The goal has been set at $50,000 and from what we’ve seen so far, Kevin will be able to finally take some time off from work.
While Kevin’s story made it clear that employees need to be rewarded, KFC has provided an answer.
In a statement on behalf of Burger King, a representative said: “This video shows a team member receiving a peer-to-peer reward in recognition of a short-term positive performance/experience. The franchisee offers its team members a robust employee recognition program.”
It’s good to see Kevin finally reaping the rewards. So there you have it folks. What did you think? Do let us know your thoughts in the comment section below. If you enjoyed this article, check out our other features on the Daily soap dish.
