The scene then changes to a group of students writing down an amount of how much they each wanted to contribute to buy a new pair of shoes for their friend, which has a goal of IDR 217,000 which is around RM63.
The video also shows cash being collected ranging from IDR 2,000, which is RM0.50 to IDR 50,000 (RM15).
At the end of the video, the student, who was receiving the shoe can be seen opening his gift with a huge grin on his face, while being surrounded by his classmates, who, we assume, are also excited to see his reaction.
The young boy is seen smiling from ear to ear after seeing his new pair of shoes, then later starts high-five-ing his friends, who were satisfied with his reaction!
The video has since garnered over 13.4 million views at the time of writing.
Netizens took to the comment section to share how they were touched by the students’ generosity and kindness, “This is what TikTok should be. What a great example!”
“Good job, kids. Sending you love all the way from Malaysia,” one person commented.
This is so heartwarming!
