Krystal and Patrick Duhaney know how difficult it is to be new parents.
When they had their first child almost nine years ago, it was difficult for them even to pay for the necessities.
“We remember what it was like to be new parents,” Krystal told Fox News. “We struggled to make ends meet and learn some of the basics as a young couple with a new baby. “
That’s why Krystal and Patrick, from Los Angeles County, decided to pay him back.
The couple – who have two children and a third on the way – left cash hidden in various baby products at three Target stores in the Los Angeles area. In total, the couple hid $ 1,000.

Krystal told Fox that she and Patrick recently noticed how expensive baby products are, so they decided to “do something to help parents, especially during the pandemic.”
Krystal, the founder of breastfeeding support company Milky Mama, posted a video of their kind act on Instagram last month.
The clip shows the couple putting money into diaper boxes, boxes of instant formula and boxes of breast milk containers.
“Being a parent can be difficult! Krystal captioned the video. “Before founding @milkymamallc, we often struggled to make ends meet. So my husband and I went to various @target stores in Southern California and hid some money in baby items. We hope that parents who buy these items will have a brighter day when they find our freebies. “

Krystal told Fox, “We thought it would be a fun little surprise if [parents] might open up some of these baby essentials and find a little surprise that will hopefully brighten up their day or make things a bit easier. “
“Or, if they weren’t in need, then I hope they pay for it,” Krystal added.

However, that won’t be the end of the Duhaney’s generosity.
Krystal said their goal is “to try and do something charitable every month, just to give back in some way.
“It’s important for us to show our children that giving back is so important,” she said. “So we don’t know if we’ll do the exact same thing, but we will definitely do something along the same lines as giving back to parents. “

As well as giving directly to parents, the couple also hope they’ve been able to influence others to do acts of kindness as well.
Krystal said, “We just hope someone who saw the video was inspired to do something nice for their neighbor or someone else so that hopefully we can all have a better day. “
