The world isn't totally a shitty place, thanks to a stranger who has changed the life of a hardworking Latino man.
Joel Cervantes Macias was driving through the Little Village area in Chicago when he saw an elderly man pushing his paleta cart.
"The dude just looked like he was suffering. I thought, 'This is a guy who aught to be enjoying retirement,'" Cervantes told DNA Info.
According to DNA, 89-year-old Fidencio Sanchez has been selling popsicles in the Little Village area since 1993.
After seeing how inspired his Facebook friends were, Joe Loera and Macias started a GoFundMe page for the man.
What started off minor monetary help has turned into an inspiring fundraiser as the campaign has reached over $168K, and counting.
"I was very surprised. I am very thankful for the men that thought of doing this. I am very thankful for the favor," Fidencio Sanchez said through Perez to the Chicago Tribune.
Apparently, Sanchez was going through a difficult time.
"Mr. Fidencio Sanchez and his wife recently lost their only daughter and are still heartbroken about the situation," the GoFundMe campaign page stated. "His elderly wife was selling paletas also to help pay bills, but she fell ill and can't work anymore."
With the outpour of love and support, the incredibly hardworking Sanchez family will be able to finally get the rest that they need and deserve.
