Kevin Ford, the Burger King employee who recently went viral for receiving a goodie bag after 27 years of loyalty to his job without missing a shift, has received over $275,000 in donations to a GoFundMe campaign set up for him by his daughter, Seryna Ford.

Seryna had this to say about her father's story of loyalty in the GoFundMe:


Hi, My name is Seryna. The man in that video is my father. He has worked at his job for 27 years and yes, he has never missed a day of work. He originally began working at this job as a single father when he gained custody of me and my older sister 27 years ago. Then as our family grew and he remarried, he continued to work there because of the amazing health insurance that was provided through this employer because it was unionized. This got all four of his daughters through high school and college with full healthcare coverage.

My dad continues to work there, because though he does look young, he is coming up on retirement age and leaving would cost him his retirement. In no way are we asking for money or is he expecting any money but if anyone feels like blessing him he would love to visit his grandchildren.

Originally, the GoFundMe was set up by Seryna to help raise $200 for her father to go see his grandchildren. As of this writing, the GoFundMe campaign has raised $277,634, with even a $5,000 donation from actor David Spade, who wrote “Keep up the good work,” under his donation.

Kevin Ford has told TMZ that he plans on using the money raised to visit his family in Texas and purchase a new car.
