A small act of kindness really can get you somewhere. If somewhere is on “The Ellen Show.”
Texas A&M student Ashton Robinson emailed her professor Dr. Henry Musoma ahead of class to let him know that she wouldn’t be able to make it because she didn’t have a baby sitter for her 10-month-old son.
Musoma proposed a simple solution: bring him.
Robinson posted a video of Musoma holding her son, while lecturing, to Facebook earlier this month. The post has since been shared some 12,000 times and garnered nearly 50,000 likes.
During the pair’s appearance on “Ellen,” DeGeneres gifted Robinson $10,000 and encouraged viewers to “be kind to one another.”
