Luis Sanchez has loved the trumpet since he first picked one up and “it spoke to his soul.” And he’s spent years saving up for one of his own while watching his Mexican immigrant parents struggle with money. So last year he bid on one at his high school music department fundraiser, but was outbid.
But he set his sights on this year’s fundraiser and brought his life savings - $600 - to bid on a trumpet again. Sadly, the winning bid was $1,200 from another student’s parent, Gian Montesini. But this dad has a plan all along.
Montesini knew Sanchez had been saving money for the trumpet and he decided to make sure he got one. “We let opportunities to do good pass us by,” he explains. “And I thought, 'I'm just going to do this. And I'll figure out what to cut to make ends meet later.'”
Of course, Sanchez was shocked and thrilled when he received the trumpet. "It showed me that people have a good heart,” Sanchez says. And he plans to pay this act of kindness forward. "I don’t have much to give back, but I want to give back by working harder than I ever could," he says. "It’s motivation for me to keep going and shows me that good things are still happening."
- A pair of teens confronted a family selling Girl Scout cookies outside a Walmart, claiming the daughter owed them $20
- When the family said they didn't have the cash, the teens demanded payment in cookies, but were refused
- The teens then attacked the parents of the Girl Scout
- They were later arrested
How many Thin Mints can you buy with $20? Two teens in Palm Coast, Florida tried to find out and ended up in the back of a cop car.
Teen Daniel Kennedy and his 16-year-old brother, whose name was not released, went to the local Walmart where Thomas Ketchum was helping sell Girl Scout cookies. They claimed Ketchum's daughter owed them $20 and they wanted the money. When 49-year-old Ketchum said he didn't have the cash, the Kennedys demanded payment in cookies. They were denied, and caused a massive scene that ended with Ketchum being knocked down to the ground and cookie boxes scattered everywhere.
To make matters even stranger, Daniel and his brother were escorted their by their mom, Erin. It's unclear if she was involved in the melee, which also included injuries to other members of Ketchum's family. Either way, Daniel and his brother were both charged with disorderly conduct and battery. No word on if they got their $20.
