Parents sacrifice the world for their children but how often do they return the favor? A 19-year-old college student wanted to help out his mother for her birthday by getting her a new bed.
For over a decade his mother slept on the couch, letting him sleep on their €100 (~$122 USD) mattress. After heading off to college the son got his first job removing wallpaper in a house for €2 (~$2.45 USD) an hour. The previous owners stacked layers of wallpaper and the entire removal process took him 40 days. With his first check, the son decided to replace that ratty 13-year-old mattress.
