The future just got a little easier for one baby girl born in Missouri who 7-Eleven called #LuckyLady.

J’aime Brown was born on July 11, at 7:11 and weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces.
July 11 is a special day to 7-Eleven anyway, and to celebrate, stores across the country give away free Slurpees.
Parents Rachel Langford and Johntez Brown from St. Louis knew immediately they needed to tell 7-Eleven about their daughter’s birth after seeing all the numbers add up.

Company officials couldn’t let an opportunity like this go by. Would a birth so fortuitous ever happen again?
So, they loaded up the family with gifts for J’aime and made a nice donation to her college fund.
Representatives told USA Today,
“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.”

“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.”
The gesture was way more than J’aime’s parents had hoped for. Langford told CNN, “It’s hard for anybody to even get a trust fund for their children. To get a blessing like that, it just helps a lot.”
As for J’aime, Langford says she’s taking it very well and has responded by sleeping and eating.
Congratulations, mom, dad and baby. Seems like a couple of celebration Slurpees might be in order.
