SAN ANTONIO, TX – A teen in San Antonio who was unable to find work created his own job and is earning the respect of thousands of people on the internet.
Todd Arredondo, of San Antonio, told CBS4 he was driving downtown when he saw a teen selling candy apples and bottled water. Arredondo gave him $20 for his effort to work on the street on a hot day. Arredondo passed the teen again while returning home from dinner, and he felt compelled to strike up a conversation with him. The teen introduced himself as Xavier and told Arrendo he was just trying to make a living and pay his bills.
He showed Arrendo a sign on the front of his box that says, “If you can’t find a job, make one.” Arrendo was inspired by Xavier’s message and wanted to help him, so he gave the teen $100. Xavier called Arrendo an angel.
Arrendo also set up a GoFundMe page for Xavier and is asking acyone who can help Xavier get a better job to reach out to him
