Social media is a wonderful place, minus the trolls. Over the past few years, we have seen a number of ways in which various social media platforms have helped people escape dire scenarios. All it takes is a quick post and the click of a button and help is at your doorstep.
A heartwarming incident shared by Reddit user shows just how powerful social media is. The unnamed user shared an account of how he struggled to pay his college fee.
In a Reddit post he wrote, “A few weeks ago I approached /r/India in distress, after rushing from banks to banks and talking to whoever I can, I was unable to arrange even 1/3rd of the magic 1.6LPM number which could help me pay the fee. The college was not so supportive and banks were reluctant because for some reason I can’t get study loan between the course, and some have not even replied till date.”
The user named dodunichaa said, “25 of you who helped me financially and hundreds of individual who offered useful advice, kept asking me if I needed any more help, some were even willing to offer me internship/projects to work on to cover my expenses.”
