This baby is trading Slurpees for textbooks.
After an infant was born on July 11 (7/11) at 7:11 p.m. weighing 7 pounds and 11 ounces, 7-Eleven pledged $7,111 toward a college fund for her.
Baby J’Aime Brown stunned parents Johntez Brown and Rachel Langford with her coincidental timing. Once news of the baby caught on, the couple said they planned to alert the company of the birth.
This week, the convenience store company told USA Today it is donating to a college fund for the St. Louis newborn.
“After catching wind of the incredible news, 7-Eleven decided to pledge $7,111 to the newborn’s college fund to honor her entry to the world,” it told the news outlet.
“Along with this pledge, the brand has also provided the family with diapers, 7-Eleven onesies, and other newborn goodies to help her parents along the way.”
Days after the mysterious birth, Langford told CNN that she often saw the numbers seven and 11 during her pregnancy. “A lot of the times I would look at the clock and it was 7:11,” she said.
