A California couple who struggled after welcoming their first child is now going out of their way to help new parents in similar situations – one dollar at a time. Krystal Duhaney and her husband Patrick recently decided to spread some kindness by leaving $1,000 worth of cash inside baby products at various Target stores in Southern California. Krystal – who is the founder of Milky Mama, initially posted about her Target adventure on Instagram at the end of April. In the post, Krystal shared a video of her and Patrick safely slipping dollar bills into diaper boxes and under unopened formula lids at the Target stores. "Being a parent can be tough!" she wrote in the post. "Before I founded @milkymamallc, we often struggled to make ends meet. So, Hubby and I went to various @target stores in Southern California and hid money in baby items." "We hope that the parents that purchase these items have a brighter day when they find our gifts," she added. In the weeks that followed, Krystal's post went viral and has since been viewed thousands of times. Along the way, it has earned nearly 87,000 likes and hundreds of comments from people commending the couple for their generous actions.
