    Shoe shiner donates $200K in tips to children in need


    Albert Lexie has been shining shoes at Children's Hospital for 32 years

    And Lexie gives every cent of his tips back to the children.

    “I think he does it because he loves the kids,” said Dr. Joseph Carcillo. “He's donated over a third of his lifetime salary to the Children’s Hospital Free Care Fund.”

    The money goes to parents of sick children who can’t afford to pay medical costs.

    Such a good and decent man. A humble shoe shiner who has unselfishly helped so many people in need.

    Many greedy people of wealth with their mansions and $20,000 purses and $2000 shoes etc. could learn a lot from this man.
