CHICAGO, IL (WSPA)— A photo of a 89-year-old Chicago Popsicle vendor went viral online and sparked compassion that lead to a successful Go-Fund-Me Campaign.
The elderly salesman received a check for over $384,000.
The money gathered from strangers online was raised to help the man and his wife.
The two were forced to work after their adult daughter, who had been supporting them, died recently.
Joel Cervantes took the now famous photo of Fidencio Sanchez and created the nine-day, online money drive.
He was there to present the check to the couple.
