Dobri Dobrev

This is Dobri Dobrev. He's 98 year old and resides in Baylovo, Bulgaria. He  lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes to the city of Sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
 Mr. Dobrev is a well known fixture around several of the city’s churches and is known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collectedover 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living instead off his monthly state pension of 80 euros.
This man is a Hero in my book..
