Jeremy Sandoval saved his pennies to purchase his product. He sells snacks on the street to help support his family.
when the going gets tough. Jeremy Sandoval and his best friend, Daniel Valencia get going. Can you favor Hello. Jeremy has been at this for a while. We saved for about two months to get the stuff that we have today. Pringles water, Coca Cola, peanuts, all for a dollar with the wagon, his grandpa about him. They set up shop most afternoons, but the money he's trying to make isn't for him. So me, and that's just sure if you're sending that one day in the living room and we're wondering, how can we help my mom and that while she's my cousin by calling my mom? So he holds up this sign, which caught the attention of It's cold out here, and he's out here selling Cokes like, Hey, man, that's cool, bro. Marcos Rivera. I was driving home and I saw his sign that says, trying to help my mom with Bills and I think anybody that would see that sign would flip a U turn and come back and buy some snacks. Marcos decided to come back and buy out his entire inventory. It shows like he's doing what he's doing, what needs to be done to help his mom. My early childhood was pretty hard. My birth mom, she waas she was always, like, down and depressed. And we can't really help her because she refused the help. And so we're like, Okay, well, like we don't know what to do. And, um, so then she passed away, and then, um my cousin and my auntie came along. Jeremy says it's his cousin. He actually calls Mom now. And with a not with health problems and a cousin trying to provide for the whole household, Jeremy and his sister decided to take action. We did this like, two times before she found out. And so when we went home, we had about maybe, I think, 100 15 bucks the first two times we did this and we gave her the money. She said What? It does get this round. And I told her walking go in the living room and you'll see her car with our snacks and stuff. And she was like, Okay, well, and then she went in there and she couldn't believe it in her mouth, dropped and And she she tried, and she was saying How um this is really didn't help her out. He says he doesn't care if people might criticize him for being so young and selling stuff on the street. They don't know the value of what me and my family have been through and what we had to go through to get to this point. Despite all the life this 13 year old has lived, he's grateful. I'm very thankful for it, and I'm thankful for having a roof over my head, and I'm thankful for having new, cool clothes on my body every day.
