- Crisalyn Moreno has been wondering where her son was spending his money as he appears to not be buying the food that they have at school
- Her son then said he was saving all of the money that she was giving him all this time
- His reason for saving the money was so that he can get enough to be able to get an eye checkup
Masbate, Philippines – When parents have their children go to school, they would give them “baon” (allowance) or something that they can eat while at school. In some cases, they would give them money instead so that the child can buy the food from the school itself, and at the same time, teach them the importance of money and how to become thrifty.
Crisalyn Moreno appears to have the same idea when she would give her son P10 every day for him to use to buy soup at school. She then noticed that there were times that he would come home and his cup that is used for the soup appears to not be used, so she thought that he was using the money to buy something unnecessary.
In a viral video that was posted on Facebook, she took a video of when she spoke to her son regarding where his money went. The kid was very respectful and he truthfully said that there were cases that he doesn’t buy soup at school.
When he was asked where the money goes, he said he had it hidden, and he took it out to show his mother.
When he was asked why he was saving the money, his simple response was that he wants to use use it for an eye checkup. Apparently one of the child’s eyes is blind.
The kid was able to save up to around P75 in exchange for not buying the soup at school. Based on Crisalyn’s post, he has already been asking if he can get a job when he grows up while one of his eyes is blind, and he was being bullied because of it as well.
The video went viral with over 2,000 shares and based on updates on Crisalyn’s other posts, there were people that reached out to her to provide assistance, both financially and in regards to getting her son’s eyes checked.
Good deeds will not go unrewarded, and hopefully good things will come to your son after this.
