Kid with Cardboard School Bag is Equal Parts Heart-Breaking and Inspiring





Do you still remember the bags you used for school when you were younger? Did you have those fancy bags with catchy kiddie designs? Did you choose the bags yourself or did your parents simply bought it for you?

Whatever your answers may be, consider yourself lucky compared to the young boy whose picture recently went viral online.

As you can see on the image, this student is so poor his family couldn’t even afford to buy him a schoolbag. And so he uses a cardboard box to carry his school stuff instead.

Without a schoolbag, this boy uses a cardboard box instead to carry his stuff to school.
