There are many parents out there who would do anything for their children – even if it means setting aside their own needs to meet those of their kids.

We’ve heard many touching stories of how mothers and fathers go out of their way just to make sure their children have everything they need, even if they can’t afford it.

A poor father from the Philippines took his son to a shoe store to buy shoes for him. But instead of taking out a wallet, he took out a box full of coins that he had saved over a period of many years.
