- Our parents will often struggle through life to ensure that we have the best life possible
- One man recently took to social media to reveal his dad had run a vegetable stall to support him
- The man explained that this hustle had helped him obtain his law degree, asking peeps to support the stall
Parents often silently struggle in life to ensure their children have a better future than they themselves had.
One man recently celebrated his father's hustle as a vegetable vendor at a station in Mabopane.
He took to social media to encourage others to support his dad's stall, where he works during the holidays:
"If ever you’re in Mabopane station, please come support my dad. These veggies helped me obtain my law degree so during the holidays I’m just out here."
Many were inspired by the post appreciating the sacrifice the dad had made for his son's benefit. Take a look at just a few of the reactions to the post below:
@Qengeba12: "I admire & respect men who acknowledge their upbringing & parents hard labour. All the best in your future.Thixo akuphe amandla wokubenzela mimangaliso nabo."
@nnani_m_: "Mo stationeng mo kae? I work there and ke berekisa di veg every day I could be his customer."
@Ofentse_Mooi: "I'm on the wrong side of PTA but I'll have to make a detour - ill see if I can make out the stall - haven't been there in 2 decades maybe."
@welilezee: "Another reason why I'm saying this is that, I hustled there [in Mabopane station] as a "carry boy" around 1993/4."
@Lyree007: "We had a sweets and loose cigarettes stand at our gate. We never went hungry. Never underestimate what those few R1 coins can add up to! Bless you and your dad, most of us see our own parents in him and ourselves in you!"
@Katlego72247581: "This is powerful."
@DK_Chokwe: "Mo kae mo Mabopane? I'll come buy kaosane if He is operational."
@MolfMoloisane: "Please take him to the next level, help him obtain a shop space, or better still help him buy a farm, formalised his business, then he can sell to other street Vendors because he understands their challenges, he can make tailor made payment plans, good luck."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Manda Roos took to Facebook and shared a touching story in the #ImStaying group about a boy called Joshua who has worked hard the whole year raising money.
He managed to make enough to give 11 pensioners a fantastic Christmas lunch. He not only raised the money but helped to cook and plate the 11 dishes.
The ambitious young man has already started thinking of plans for 2021 but is taking a break to spend time with his family and he wishes everyone a safe and happy Christmas.
