A former Kansas City police officer helped change a complete stranger's life with a random act of kindness.

After his server at Popeye's told him she was working towards her dream of going to nursing school, Donald Carter decided he wanted to help.

Unbeknownst to her, he started a GoFundMe page called "Send a Random Girl 2 Nursing School." Two days later, he had raised more than $4,600.

After reaching his goal, Carter went back to the restaurant to break the news to the employee. He had promised donors he'd do a Facebook Live broadcast presenting her with the gift.

"Oh my God. I thank y'all so much," the shocked employee said in the video. "Thank you so much. I don't even know how to describe it."
