This is making the rounds around Facebook and Twitter today, and much deservedly so!
A filmmaker stopped by one day for some used auto parts, and was astounded at the makeshift arcade and at Caine's never-give-up attitude, and asked Caine's father if he could make a short film about Caine's Arcade.Caine Monroy is a 9-year old boy who spent his summer vacation building an elaborate DIY cardboard arcade in his dad’s used auto parts store [in east LA].
I don't want to spoil anything, just watch. And bring some Kleenex!
Also, they've been raising money for Caine to go to college. No one in his family has ever gone. Since the short film was released online today, they've raised $28,000 and counting! They actually had to raise the target from $25K to $100K.
I hope this little man gets all the support he needs to make his dreams of building awesome stuff come true!
