18-year-old makes thoughtful gift to homeless man, wants his admirers to pay it forward
Brandon Daroowala is getting a lot of attention, but he just hopes others will pay it forward too.
College freshman Brandon Daroowala is paying it forward at an age when most of his peers are more worried about paying back loans.
The 18-year-old student, who is about to start college at Texas A&M, is making viral feel-good news this week by buying a wheelchair for a homeless man in his neighborhood.
Daroowala recently returned from a church mission trip to Lindale, Texas, during which he repaired homes and built wheelchair ramps for people who couldn’t handle the tasks themselves. He maintained his interest in serving his community when he returned home to Cypress, Texas. When he saw a handwritten sign about a disabled homeless man living under a bridge and needing a wheelchair, Daroowala went to Walmart, bought a $200 wheelchair, and delivered it with his girlfriend to the man in need.
Texas A&M caught word of its new student’s kindness and spread the word on Facebook.
Daroowala hopes that others will remember to pay it forward like he did. “I was just super excited to help,” he told KBTX News. “This is not of my doing. I’m just following God’s will. Even if one person sees this and is inspired, it’s completely worth it.”
