Guy Didn’t Notice He Dropped Php7k, Surprised after Street Kid Returns the Money

Sometimes in life, the ones who don’t have money are actually the ones who are more compassionate about others and the ones who are honest in returning other people’s property, because they know the feeling of losing something valuable and not getting it back.

Take for example a street kid who returned Php7k dropped by a man who didn’t even notice he lost his money.

According to Dindo Lorenzo, it was around 1AM when he dropped by McDonald’s Sta. Maria. While taking his phone out, he didn’t notice that his money fell out. The Php7k was in 7 pieces of crisp Php1,000 bills; thus, it had easily slipped out of his pocket without him noticing he dropped the money.

While he was already inside the McDonald’s store, the kid hurried to call him to return the money.

Considering that the kid was living in the streets and had no money, the Php7k was already such a huge amount of money for him! It was like he hit the jackpot with the cash he found. But instead of keeping the money, this young man returned it to the rightful owner instead.

His actions earned him much praise from Dindo who was quite surprised over the action. According to Dindo, he was out buying food for his family at the time. He tried to offer the boy some food but he refused, saying he had already eaten.

When Dindo gave the kid some money as reward, the boy cried and told him it was going to be a big help for his sick mother. The kid said his dad was jobless and his mother was sick, yet he was not tempted to keep the money that Dindo dropped because his mother had raised him to be honest.

The boy has since been identified as Andrey Macabuhay who was rewarded for his honest deed with scholarship from the Immaculate Conception Institutions. Help also poured in for his sick mother.

Taxi Driver Praised after Rescuing Stray Cat in the Middle of Highway

So many animals are getting hit by vehicles along the world’s busy highways, but one cat was saved by a taxi driver who stopped his vehicle to save it from the middle of the highway! Isn’t that wonderful?

Taxi Driver Saves Stray Cat from Highway

It is really so sad that there are millions of animals that get hit by vehicles along the world’s busy highways because these creatures have no idea that these fast-moving machines are heading to their direction.

But it is nice to hear stories of people who stop to help these creatures to safety.

Kenn Migan Vincent Gumonan was driving along a national highway in Lapasan, Cagayan de Oro City in southern Philippines last January 13, 2021 at around 9:47 AM when he saw the taxi ahead of him stop all of a sudden. He was curious why the driver stopped.

Moments later, the driver of the said taxi went out of the vehicle to check underneath. Whatever it is under the car was not yet visible to Gumonan at the time, but the taxi driver drove the vehicle a bit forward and revealed a cat!

Gumonan watched happily as the taxi driver tried his best to catch the cat without spooking it. After all, if the cat gets spooked, it might suddenly run across the street and get hit by the other passing vehicles that might not notice the small figure moving in that highway.

It was a good thing that the taxi driver managed to catch the stray cat. He left his vehicle as he crossed the street, bringing the cat to safety. Unknown to him, Gumonan was cheering at his actions and would later share the video on Facebook where his heroic deeds went viral.

Kudos to this kindhearted taxi driver!

Wildlife-Vehicle Collisions (WVCs)

Increasing automobile speed has contributed a lot to the rapid rise in wildlife-vehicle collisions (WVCs). This is also due to many roads being created along places that have once been home to many animals. Moreover, a lot of drivers in recent years don’t pay too much attention to the road as they are distracted by their mobile phones or just want to move at higher speeds to reach their destinations more quickly.

3-Year-Old Kid Wows with Savings of Php77k, Parents Claim They Don’t Spend His Gifts

It is a common joke that parents often ‘keep’ their children’s monetary gifts, but actually spend it for food or something else! But a nearly 3-year-old kid wows with savings of Php77k because his parents claimed that they don’t spend his gifts at all. Wow.

Kid Saves Php77k from Gifts

A lot of ninongs, ninangs, and even family members prefer to give monetary gifts instead of buying something because they have a hard time picking the right gift that the receiver might like. After all, kids (and even adults!) can be so picky when it comes to things they want.

But it is also a common joke (and reality) that parents tell the kids they will ‘keep’ the money but actually spend it for the household needs, such as food or paying for bills.

While that’s a worthwhile way of spending the money, there are also parents who disagree with this arrangement. After all, the giver had given the money for the child/receiver to buy something that he/she wanted.

Jarlo Manalad recently shared how their nearly 3-year-old son has Php77k in savings because they don’t spend any of the monetary gifts that he received. The money came from so many people who love the kid – ninongs, ninangs, relatives, and family friends.

Even if someone gave them something for the child’s birthday or special event, the couple decided to keep the money as the child’s savings. Manalad promised that any money given by anyone in the future will also go to this savings fund.

Aside from this money, the couple also saves Php200 per pay day for the child’s future educational funds. They hope that they could fund the child’s college education with their salaries but might use the money they saved for it.

The post has gone viral, with many people expressing admiration to these parents for the kind of attitude they have for their son’s money.

Building an Educational Fund

It is a big reality that college education can be so expensive. That’s why it is best to start saving for it when your kids are still small.

First, set your tuition fund goals. Create a savings strategy such as setting aside the money for savings before budgeting the rest of your salary. Some would suggest investing the money to grow it but others believe it is best to put it in the bank. Make sure to track your progress to inspire you to continue saving.
