Sunday Smiles

Robin Newberger's 5 year old son Daniel has autism.

He used to fear the garbage trucks that would come by his house every monday to collect the trash, so Robin showed him some videos of how garbage trucks work and Daniel grew to be very interested in them.

Over time, monday morning trash pick up became one of Daniel's favourite things - as many children on the autism scale do, Daniel finds comfort in routine and his Monday Morning garbage day routine is one of these things.

His parents often film Daniel enjoying his trash day ritual, but this particular video caught something a little different...

The day Daniel's favourite trash collector Manuel chose to stop and surprise Daniel.

The video just melts my heart, the world need more people like Manuel who take the time out of their day to put a smile on a childs face.

I hope his employers have been made aware of his kindness.
