KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A kind stranger stepped in to help after a mother and daughter found out their Taylor Swift concert tickets were fake.

Helena Egleston wanted to take her young step-daughter to the Taylor Swift concert in Kansas City, so she went online and found someone who was selling tickets, WDAF reports.  

Egleston met the seller in person and paid $200 per ticket, thinking they were legitimate.

But when Egleston showed up to the concert with her tickets, she was told they were fake.


As she and her step-daughter stood in the corner crying, a stranger walked up and asked what had happened.

After sharing her story, the woman went to the box office, bought two more tickets and gave them to Egleston.

Two other women who heard her story chipped in to help, too.

“Two other wonderful women were standing over there, watching me stand there, breaking down and crying, came up to my daughter and gave her $20 to purchase something inside,” Egleston told WDAF. “Everybody was just amazing, and it shows how much good there is out there in the world.”
