Don Beto, 61, is a bricklayer who lent money to a «friend» who disappeared after robbing him and taking out two loans in his name. The man didn’t know how to get out of debt until a stranger held out a helping hand.

America Leal’s blood is boiling with rage.

It was just another day for her until she arrived at the Public Prosecutor’s Office of La Paz, in Mexico. There she saw an old man who was dressed as a construction worker seated. In his eyes, she could see anger, helplessness and, most of all, sadness.

Without thinking twice, the woman approached the man and heard his sad story. She could barely hold back the tears.

«This story makes me sick to my stomach thinking of his courage and helplessness! Many know me and how I always try to help people with what little I have. In this case I can’t do it alone and that’s why I ask for your noble hearts’ aid, ”the woman wrote in a Facebook post.

This man is Alberto Vale, he’s 61 years old and «those who have the pleasure of knowing him assure he is a super responsible, noble and hardworking person. He works temporarily in the Coppel construction site in Loreto. As many of you know, in December they will open the branch, which means for Mr. Beto that after December he will be out of work,” she added.

Facebook friends and acquaintances.

Today I write these words to ask for your support.

This story makes me sick to my stomach thinking of his anger and helplessness! Many know me and know that I always try to help people with what little I have. In this case I can’t do it alone and that’s why I ask for your noble hearts’ aid. The man you see in this picture is called Alberto Vale Avitia. He works temporarily in the Coppel construction site in Loreto. As many of you know, in December they will open the branch, which means for Mr. Beto that after December he will be out of work. Mr. Beto is a 61-year-old adult who, with great effort, gets up very early every day to go work. Those who have the pleasure of knowing him assure he is a super responsible, noble and hardworking person. I can only ask you for your help in supporting Mr. Beto, even if it’s with 1 peso so he can get out of this situation. It’s Christmas, the month where everyone says that unity, brotherhood and love is in the air. 

«Unfortunately, Mr. Beto fell victim to someone, a co-worker who is a paramedic, who stole about 19,000 pesos from him!!!» America Leal wrote in anger.

«Mr. Beto has debt in 2 banks as a result of this robbery, every day the man goes to the Public Prosecutor’s Office to ask for help in finding the person who stole from him, but they claim that they cannot help him. » she added.

Unable to believe the evil of his supposed «partner,» who was identified as Fernando Amador Escobar, America decided to ask for help online. She appealed to the kindness of strangers, using Don Beto’s defeated cry as the campaign’s face and publishing the elderly man’s bank account information.

The grandfather was expecting a miracle: he owed more than $1,000, not including the money he had lent to the scammer that he clearly wouldn’t get back.

But a miracle was exactly what happened. Hundreds of people, moved by the poor man’s story, came to his aid and, in less than a day, the grandfather already had more than 3,500 dollars in his bank account, enough to pay off his debts and enjoy an unforgettable Christmas.

Through his tears, the man could only say «thank you … thank you very much, have a good time».

«Beautiful people: Mr. Alberto has just come and we checked his account. The happiness no his face when he saw and felt all the love he’s receiving is priceless! », America commented to update the donors.

«You all restore the idea that there are still good and supportive people, God bless you all! We are on the right track to solve his problem,” she added.
