Caine Monroy has always had a passion for arcades. He used to take apart his toys just to see how they work. Recently, he put together an arcade made out of cardboard. He is charging people $2 to play, in hopes of saving money for college. I bet he never imagined his success. A man, named Nirvan Mullick, walked by the cardboard arcade and was so touched by this boy’s dream that he made a documentary of him. The video has had over 3.5 million views, and has helped Caine to earn over $180,000 towards college funds. On Caine’s website, it states, “As seed funding for the “Caine’s Arcade Foundation,” the Goldhirsh Foundation has generously pledged a $250,000 dollar-for-dollar matching donation: for every $1 donated by the public to “Caine’s Scholarship Fund,” the Goldhirsh Foundation will donate $1 toward establishing the Caine’s Arcade Foundation to support other amazing kids!” Caine even had the opportunity to meet with one of NASA’s top rocket scientists. What an amazing story of a truly inspirational boy.
