Man Donates Pools to Children in Need After Photo Showed Kids Swimming in Truck Bed
Todd Arredondo created a non-profit organization to donate pools for families in need after seeing kids being mocked online for their DIY version (center).
“It was truly rewarding to see their smiles,” Arredondo told InsideEdition.com.
The Texas native didn’t stop there.
Once word spread about his random act of kindness, Arredondo created a non-profit organization entitled “Pools for Kids” and has even started a GoFundMe campaign to help with the costs of the pools, which he also pays for out-of-pocket.
“This is a humbling experience for me,” said Arredondo. “When I was a kid, a gentleman bought a water-balloon for me when my family couldn’t afford one. I never forgot that moment; kids never forget.”
According to Arredondo, he has purchased 51 pools so far and delivered them to more than 24 families.
He told InsideEdition.com that by donating pools he wants to teach children about generosity and helping families in need.
“Being kind is self-rewarding,” said Arredondo. “I learned to live simply so others can simply live.”
