The boy could not contain his feelings when he put them on his eyes. His emotional reaction and tears spread rapidly on social media.
– My younger brother is colorblind, as is the principal at his school. When they were learning about a color blindness disorder in class, his principal brought some glasses that allowed him to see the colors for the first time. He received it very emotionally, according to a video posted on Twitter by his brother Ben.
Due to the popularity of the announcement, his family launched a ‘GoFundMe’ fundraising page to give Jonathan his own glasses, which cost around 2363 kuna.
– We have raised more than $ 15,000, and the excess money will go to those people who also need glasses like this, wrote his brother Ben.
