A Garbage Collector Grants A Boy’s Wish — This Is So Sweet!

This boy on the spectrum had one wish come true that he probably never could have imagined. A big fan of garbage trucks, five-year-old Daniel received an amazing present from their local garbage collector, Manuel.

What’s truly awesome is that Manuel didn’t even know Daniel was on the autism spectrum. He just knew that the little boy was always out every single Monday to watch him collect the garbage. So he presented the boy with a sweet gift that he bought with his own money.

“That little boy is so special, and he will steal anybody’s heart as soon as you see him,” Manuel said. “I didn’t know what he has but there’s something very special about him.”

The video, when posted online, understandably went viral.

Watch the touching video about a small gesture that speaks a thousand words for this little boy. Every kind and thoughtful deed we do may seem small — but it can mean the world to someone else.
