I read about the story of Justin from Rappler as The Boy Who Cried Books. It did pique my interest, and it was inspiring to read someone trying to make his life better through pursuing his passion. Dingdong also found out about him and tweeted his support:
I went over to where he currently sells books, Cool Beans along Maginhawa, to meet him. He sets up right outside the store, at the parking area. We got to talk and he is truly someone who loves books, learning and knowledge. What a great passion! Our advocacy for education in YesPinoy would benefit from his desire to bring the love of books to people. It was a blessing to get to know him. Hang in there, Justin! So many people want to help out, and we are one of them.
