    Even though they are still minors, 16-year-old Dexter Pandis and his 12-year-old cousin Onyok decided to find jobs at a construction site and at a bakery so they can earn some cash to buy a bike. The cousins wished to have a bike, even if it is a secondhand unit that they can share between them.

    Apparently also the best of friends, the cousins did not mind working hard at the construction site and doing various odd jobs so they could earn some money. They wanted a bike yet they did not just ask for one from kind netizens. Instead, they worked hard to earn the bike!

    When they finally saved Php1,000, Dexter decided to seek help from a Facebook marketplace for bikers, Padyakers Market, to ask whether there was someone who might be willing to sell them a secondhand bike for Php1,000.

    The two hoped that someone would sell them a bike for that price, but it was clear that if they can’t get a bike now, they will gladly work harder until they finally get their hands on a bike, hopefully before Christmas.

    When kindhearted netizen Manjit Reandi read Dexter’s post, he was touched by the boys’ determination to get the bike with their own hard work. They did not ask for a bike but were willing to get one secondhand bike for the money they earned. So, he decided to reward them for their efforts by buying them one bike each!

    “I was amazed at an early age napakasipag nila and both of them are studying. I liked the way he posted; hindi sya humihingi, he wanted to buy a bike from his savings from the construction. Dexter also works as a part time dishwasher in a bakery owned by a family who are helping them as well,” Reandi explained.

    “Speechless din sila which is nakakatuwa kasi even the owner of the bakery was crying when they saw the 2 new bikes for these kids. 🙂 Merry Christmas from Kuya Jet 🙂.”
