We hear everyday stories of seemingly small acts result into life-changing events. A student from the Cebu Doctor's University in Cebu, Joyce Torrefranca, took pictures of a boy studying under the McDonalds light.

When the photo went viral, Daniel Cabrera, a nine-year-old homeless boy found himself given a lot of help from various sources. He has received a scholarship until college, school supplies and light to study with. His mother struggles to make ends meet with barely 80php ($1.75) daily income.

Although Daniel and his family still don't have a place to live, his determination to study may be their ticket out of poverty in the future.
