TV star grabs his wallet after hearing that a little boy had his prosthetic leg stolen.
As Shark Tank star, Robert Herjavec, was watching the news, a shocking story came on. It was about a 4-year-old boy named Liam Brenes. While swimming in Crystal Cove national park, Liam had his prosthetic leg stolen by some heartless thief.
The Brenes family was devastated by the loss. As people of modest means, they could not afford to buy Liam another prosthetic leg. The youngster had to be carried around by his father till they could save up enough money.
Robert could not believe that someone would do such a thing. He decided to call up his friends at ABC and get into contact with Brenes family. He told them that he was going to buy Liam a new prosthetic leg.
However, his act of kindness doesn’t end there. Robert also decided to send the Brenes family on an all expenses paid trip to Disney land.
Our hats go off to Robert for using his celebrity status to do some good in the world. It’s so easy for us to just shake our heads when we hear bad news and go on with our day. It takes a special person to actually stop and do something.
