A man has been capturing many hearts online for giving encouragement to a young girl who sells her drawing for P5.
On Twitter, user @BryTooot uploaded a photo of a drawing on an elementary pad paper; sharing that he bought it from a girl who approached him along España Boulevard.
“May batang nangangalabit sa ‘kin. ‘Kuya bili ka na ng paintings ko, P5 lang, pambaon ko,'” he wrote.
[A child approached me and said, “Big brother, please buy some of my paintings, P5 only, so I can have money to buy food in school.”]
In the end, the kindhearted man bought one and encouraged the aspiring artist to pursue her dreams and buy delicious food with the money he gave her.
“Pursue your dreams, baby. Bili ka ng masarap na pagkain, ha?” he said. [Pursue your dreams, baby. Buy delicious food.]
In the comments section, he replied to queries regarding the child’s location: “Sa may mcdo po malapit sa ust, nag roroam around lang siya dun feel ko”.
He was referring to a popular food chain McDonald’s near the University of Sto. Tomas (UST), Manila.
Apparently, some of those who also pass by España, Manila want to likewise support the child by buying from her, too.
As of posting, the Twitter user’s photo has gotten over 5,500 retweets and more than 29,000 favorites.
