This fund raising started with a now viral facebook post from Ian Capoquian. Let us all help this child and save his future in any way we can.
Ian Capoquian's post:
"Please take time to read...
This is Eddie Aquino, 16 years old, and a grade 9 student. He has 2 siblings, and his parents are separated. His mother lives with her new family, while his father lives with him, weakened by years - which keeps him from working. With this situation in hand, Eddie had to work and earn for their family.
He has to endure the coldness of the street, and the harsh eyes of the society. He had to do this for his family. The only thing that keeps him from giving up is his company. A dog. A smart dog, and his name is Black Jack.
While Eddie is busy studying, Black Jack approaches people to donate even the slightest of their hearts to fill in the small bucket carried by the man's best friend.
It's a mix of emotions when you see them. Saddening but inspiring. A young man studying under the LRT with his dog helping him. Overwhelming.
I posted this because I wanted to help him. I want him to study inside a room, a well-ventilated space, with proper lighting and proper learning materials. I want to help him. If you have some concerns, don't hesitate to contact me, drop a message to my inbox, share this, and let us work hand in hand to secure the future of this child." (C)
