What would you be willing to do for a friend?
Love is shown through actions, so Joaquín didn’t want to sit idly by when he saw his friend Josué in class every day with glasses that were falling apart. They were missing screws and other parts, and Josué and his family struggled to hold them together with tape and wire.
Josué’s family, who live in Arroyito, Córdoba (Argentina), didn’t have the money to replace the little boy’s glasses.
Unhappy with this situation, Joaquín—who is nine years old—decided to do everything he could to get glasses for his classmate. So he went home, counted all his savings, and gave them to his friend.
Not only that, he had his dad help him record a video asking others for help: “The ones he has are held together with wire and tape. His mom can’t buy them since she’s out of work,” Joaquín told the camera. His dad then uploaded the video to his Twitter profile.
