Internet raises thousands for 89-year-old Chicago "popsicle man"

CHICAGO — Timing is everything, especially for 89-year-old Fidencio Sanchez.

He knows that walking down the right street in Little Village and stopping at the right corner means he’ll sell more “paletas,” or fruit popsicles.

Timing is also the reason why he’s now making headlines across the city and the country.

A man who happened to be at the right place and at the right time saw Sanchez do his everyday job, and he snapped a photo of it. He then felt compelled to begin a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for the vendor, CBS Chicago reported.
