Francis lived a bad experience and turned it into something good

I knew the story of Francisco Gallo, who was able to channel an unfortunate event into something much better.

Stories of people
Francisco Gallo jugueteria

Francisco Gallo owns a toy store in the city of Neuquén. One night, he suffered a criminal act that — against all forecasts — opened a new horizon in his life: three boys broke his stained glass window to steal him, but he forgave them and gave them the dolls. In his words, “Those children were not looking for money, they were looking for their childhood.”
That moment marked a before and after: it was an opportunity to learn and modify something both for him and for the children. From then on, he created “From a friend to a friend”, a Facebook page that invites you to be supportive and share actions to help, especially children. The premise is that what you don't use may need someone else.
Francis was able to draw something good from a bad experience, and that helped him to start a solidarity path in which, if we all put our own, hope for a better tomorrow resurfaces.
