There are GOOD people in the world. This story will restore your faith in mankind! Pushing a popsicle cart through busy city streets on hot summer days is a tough job, especially for an 89-year-old who was forced out of retirement after he and his wife lost their daughter. That’s probably why one good Samaritan’s GoFundMe account has gone wild, raising more than $274,000 and counting in 3-days for this elderly Chicago man. Joel Cervantes Macías was visiting his hometown of Chicago when he spotted Fidencio Sanchez selling paletas, a Mexican-style popsicle made with fresh fruit juices and chunks of fruit. He bought $50 worth and Sanchez, who normally makes about $50 or $60 a day, looked shocked, Afterward, Cervantes Macías posted a picture of Fidencio on Facebook saying how much he respected him. A friend then suggested that Cervantes start a GoFundMe page to help out the elderly man. And now, after just 3 days, they’ve already raised more than a quarter-million dollars for Sanchez!
