Though Wendell passed away in 1944, life experiences narrated by people have gone to show that truly, the world is a small one. Years later people get help just by mere reconnection with their old school pals.

In speaking with the media, Brayden revealed that while he is not super close to him, he never liked the way he was being picked on by people.

Brayden said the boy did not have many clothes because his parents are poor.

He said:

“I remember last year he only had 2 outfits cause he just didn’t have the money to buy clothes.”

After people learnt of Brayden’s act of love, many wanted to give the student more. They set up a fundraiser and have so far gathered more than $7000 (N2,880,360).
