Life-changing moments come when you least expect them. Such occurrences are uniquely characterized by a mystery that may take some time to unravel. There is no better way to highlight this fact than sharing Adam’s story!
So, who’s Adam?
Well, he was a homeless man in Canada. He had been in the streets for a period long enough to make him resign to fate. He was desperate and had absolutely no hope for a better future.
However, this changed in an instant. Interestingly, his turning point moments came from an unexpected quarter. It was unfathomable for Adam!
It all started when he discovered a print of Bambi, the dear in the Disney film. He knew that his discovery would earn him a few bucks. He set out to look for a buyer and he surely did. Alexander Archbold, an antique dealer, purchased it for 20 dollars.
After close examination, Alexander discovered that it was vintage and it’s real value could be more than 100 dollars!
Now, things got even more interesting
The antique dealer later made a life-changing observation. Underneath the print lay a certificate of authenticity! It turned out that the print was original and it was designed for the Bambi motion picture in 1937. After extensive research, the dealer discovered that the Bambi film was just released 5 years ago. This discovery further raised the value of the print. An art gallery in the US was willing to part with $3,500 just to have it.
The kind-hearted Alexander never forgot the homeless man!
He embarked on a mission to find Adam and started a fundraiser for him. This simple gesture was the biggest turning point for Adam! Alexander successfully raised $18,000. After a long search, he managed to get Adam where he gave him the fundraiser contributions together with his cut of the sale. This action turned his life around!
It was surely a life-changing experience from the least expected place.
