Social Media: Good or Bad? Perhaps it is worth talking about what we, the beneficiaries of the achievements of civilization, are like.
A social network is just a method of communication, a kind of tool, and how someone uses it…
Take a scalpel for example. In the hands of a surgeon it saves someone’s life, but in a criminal it can take it away.
Today we will talk about how, thanks to social networks, people united for a good cause and achieved success.
Jose Villaruel, 77, worked as a substitute teacher for many years, meaning he was known in all the schools in his town.
After all, such a teacher is called to a place where one of the main teachers falls ill or is unable to teach for some reason.
Mr. Wee, as the man was called by his many students, was always ready to go to work.He was an excellent teacher,
a cheerful and cheerful person, for which his students loved him and were always happy when he came.
Jose Villaruel, a native of Mexico, lived and worked in the US in a city in Southern California, sending the lion’s share of his earnings to his sick wife.
Difficult times have come for Uncle Jose due to the epidemic and with the transition of students to distance learning he was off work.
Living on Social Security and continuing to send money to Mexico, she could no longer pay for the apartment. Now that man’s house was his old car. In it, Jose survived the winter…
One day, a man named Stephen Nava passed by the former teacher’s car. He noticed more than once that
some gentleman lives in this car. But that day, Steve realized that he knew this man.It is Mr. V, his former teacher.
After asking the poor man how he got into such a life, Steve rented him a hotel room and gave him $300 for the first time.
But what was the next step? Stephen Nava has decided to reach out to everyone who knew Mr. Wee, primarily his students, through social networks.
The old man couldn’t believe his eyes when he received a tidy sum of $27,000 from Steve on his birthday,
which was collected by his students and other kind people who read student reviews about their teacher and joined the fundraiser.
Interested in the history of Jose and the municipality and the media.
The funds collected for the old man were enough to pay off his debts and return him to the roof. ‘Social networks are power, let’s use it for good,’ commented Steve Nava, the initiator of this event.
