Heartwarming Video Shows 14-Year-Old Giving His Shoes to Homeless Man
Viral| | By Matthew D'Onofrio
Yesterday in West Louisville, KY, a video was captured of a 14-year-old boy giving his shoes to a homeless man. It appears the boy, who goes by Ron Ron, noticed the man’s rundown shoes, sat down next to him, took his own shoes off and gave them to the man who he believed needed them.
“I gave him my shoes ‘cus he needed it,” said Ron Ron. “It’s love and it’s PURP and it’s true,” to which the man responded, “That’s what real is.”
Ron Ron is a part of PURP, People Uplifting Real People, a non-profit organization that aims to promote love and encouragement of others. The movement urges people to uplift someone, share that interaction and use the hashtag #purpme. They currently have teams in Louisville and Cincinnati and are working on more involvement in Los Angeles.
