Dade Middle School in Dallas, Texas, came up with a program called "Breakfast with Dad" for the male students and their fathers on December 14. But they knew there were a lot of boys who didn't have a father present or able to attend. School administrators went to Facebook to ask for men from the community to volunteer for the event, where they would be paired with a boy for breakfast. The school said they needed at least 50 volunteers. You might be heartened to learn that 600 men showed up!
The school's request spread like wildfire, and come the day of the event, 600 men from Northern Texas showed up to lend a helping hand. The volunteers did everything from engaging the boys in casual conversation to teaching them how to tie their ties. Excuse us while we mop up our tears.
