A Student Noticed A Less Fortunate Classmate Needed Shoes - And He Really Delivered
It’s the season for giving. For most of us that means exchanging gifts with loved family and friends. This year, one student went above and beyond by buying for someone less fortunate than himself.
Yaovi Mawuli, a high school student, wrote on Facebook that he spotted a classmate sporting extremely worn trainers when another student in their French class began making fun of the condition of his shoes. Mawuli generously decided to gift his classmate a pair of highly sought-after Jordan XI Concord trainers (apparently they queue out the store for these in the US).
Mawuli took to a local Facebook group to get advice on how to present the gift. “I’m planning to give him a pair of Concord lows,” he posted. “Now my question is how do I present it to him without him feeling like I feel sorry for him? I’m just trying to help a brother out.”
In the end his new friend was appreciative of the gift and the two even posed for a photo together.
