Maine (WGME / CNN) – A stranger from York, Maine gathered to give the girl and mother a special vacation.
The girl’s mother posted on Facebook that she wanted to take her daughter on a trip to Maine. She said she couldn’t afford a hotel, so she asked for suggestions on where to park overnight.
“I was really worried about putting that post knowing the response I could get,” said Lis St. Martin.
St. Martin is from Charlestown, New Hampshire and grew up in York. In her social media post, she didn’t really ask for anything, but a woman reached out to her offer.
“There was a woman who offered her daughter and made a reservation, and I stayed in Anchorage for two nights,” recalls St. Martin.
At first, St. Martin said she didn’t want to accept it. “I was very shocked. It was a big deal for me as a single mother,” she said.
When the duo arrived at the hotel, they found more. The complete stranger gave them a ticket to York Wild Kingdom and a gift for her upcoming 10-year-old daughter.
“I wanted to be able to make memories with my daughter, enjoy a few dinners, and not have to worry about paying,” said Nathan Cox, who works at Lobster Cove. Woody’s Brick Oven Pizza and We provided a wild gift certificate. Willy’s Burger and Fun-O-Rama quarter rolls.
“I’m blessed this year. I’m benefiting a lot this year, so if you can help me, I don’t know who someone is in,” Cox said.
St. Martin said her daughter lovingly called her vacation a “gift-wrapped” weekend.
