This boy was sent loads of books after a postman saw he had only junk mail to read

If this doesn’t make you smile/shed a tear, we don’t know what will.

THIS IS MATHEW Flores of Sandy, Utah.

Last week, postman Ron Lynch was delivering mail to Flores’ apartment complex when he spotted the 12-year-old fishing junk mail from a bin so he could have something to read.

Lynch wrote on Facebook:

He asked me if I had any extra mail he could read. He told me his wish is to have books to read. I told him the library had many, but he said they don’t have a car, and couldn’t afford the bus.

Moved by the boy’s story, Lynch asked his Facebook friends to send Flores some reading material.

“I was given many books as a child, and it’s time to help someone else,” Lynch said.

According to KSL TV, Lynch’s post quickly attracted thousands of shares – and before he could even return to Flores’ home on Sunday with books for him, he had already received some from kind strangers.

“[I think] there are 350 books or more,” said the boy. “People said ‘These are for you’, I thought they were mistaken, but these are for me.”

We’re not crying. It’s just rain on our faces.
