The ShoeShine Philanthropist

At One4All, we always talk about letting people “Unleash Their Good.” We hope to inspire people in their personal philanthropy.

This is one of those stories that remind us about the truly great good people in the world. Via Pittsburg’s WTAE:¬†Albert Lexie, a shoe shiner at Children’s Hospital, has been giving his tips to a fund for kids who can’t afford medical costs. He’s been doing this since 1981. 32 years of tips have added up to over $200,000 for medical care for kids at this hospital.

There’s even a billboard about Albert.

This clip reminded me that a dollar here, a dollar there, eventually adds up to a lot of dollars.

Learn about him at the Children’s Hospital site as well as information on a book written about “Albert’s Kids.”
