A photograph of 9-year-old Daniel Cabrera went viral recently after capturing him studying by the light of a McDonald's.

Cabrera's mother is a widow. His father died in 2013. Christina Espinosa and her three youngest children including Daniel live in her boss's small grocery store. Their home, which was described as a shanty, was destroyed by fire. Espinosa earns just $1.77 a day working at the store and for the owners at their home, The Telegraph reported.
