Meet Lupito, a Mexican boy whose inspiring video was posted on @rubencerquinz, a TikTok account dedicated to helping low-income people. In the video, Lupito tries to sell balloons to help his mom, who recently lost her job, buy food.
The video captures the moment when one concerned person decides to buy Lupito’s balloons. When asked about the price, Lupito replied, “I don’t need money, I need milk and bread for my brother.”
The video of this racy exchange resonated with more than 19 million viewers on social media.
People who watched the video asked, “Who cried the most? What a beautiful heart and innocence” and “No child should have to go through this.” In the comments, Rupito and his family were supportive and congratulatory.
According to one source, the people who helped Lupito belong to an organization called “Héroes sin capa” (“Heroes without capes” in English). They provided the boy and his family with food, financial assistance and new balloons to replace the ones Lupito had put up for sale.
A sincere note accompanying the offerings read “Don’t lose faith” and gave a ray of hope to the struggling family.
In a subsequent video, Lupito expressed his feelings for his father and delivered a sincere message of hope for his return. The story unfolded as the organization continued to support Lupito and reward him for his altruistic act of helping his unemployed mother.
Lupito was beyond thrilled to receive school supplies, shoes, new clothes, and even a bicycle.
Lupito’s story touched thousands of people, eliciting blessings and requests for continued support for the organization. Comments such as “what Lupito has done is worth every good deed” reflect admiration for the positive impact this heartwarming story has had.
