Man Donates Tips For 30+ Years

By: Amberli Sullivan



Albert Lexie worked as a shoe shiner at the Children’s Hospital in Pittsburgh for over 30 years. He charged $5 per shine, and only made about $10,000 a year. But the amazing part is he never kept ANY of his tips. He donated every single tip to something called the Free Care Fund, which helps provide medical care to underprivileged kids.

Unfortunately,  Albert passed away last week at the age of 76. Someone tallied up all the donations he made over the years.. and in the end, he gave away over $200,000, or more than a third of all the money he made. WOW!

Watch the tribute video the hospital made for him:
