Posted on: April 25th, 2014 by Amy

Boy-buys-fire-alarms-for-neighbors-jpgAre you in the mood for a feel-good story this week? Check out this tale of a young boy named Hector who, after hearing of a tragedy on the news, used his savings to buy smoke detectors for strangers. You can use the questions below as a jumping off point for a meaningful discussion!


Why do you think Hector sacrificed his savings to help people he didn’t even know?

Have you ever saved money for something? What was it?

What cause or person might you sacrifice your savings for? Can you think of one? Why that one?

In the video, Hector says, “It really hurts my heart to see people die in a fire.” What “really hurts your heart?”

Has anyone ever done something nice to surprise you? How did you feel? How do you think they felt?

In this particular story, the news is a force for good- twice. What do you think of the news?
