Albert Lexie has been shining shoes at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh since the 1980s. He donates all of his tips to the hospital’s Free Care Fund, which ensures that all child patients receive the medical care they need regardless of their families’ ability to pay. What makes this gesture so awe-inspiring is that Mr. Lexie only earns about $10,000 a year. Mr. Lexie refers to the patients and children at the hospital as “Albert’s kids.” You can help Albert Lexie by making a donation here. Check out the videos below, highlighting Albert’s incredible story. The purple cart Albert uses was designed and manufactured by Salco Engineering.
