Hundreds of men stunned organised when they turned up to mentor kids without fathers at a Texas school.
The Breakfast with Dads event, held a Billy Earl Dade Middle School in Dallas, Texas, was held in December. The event, for boys aged 11-13, aimed to help students, the school and families bond.
When organisers put out a plea on Facebook for men to come in and bond with boys who didn’t have fathers or a father figure in their lives – they expected to get around 50.
Instead they had over 600 men turn up to the breakfast – who spent time with the boys, talking, and taking part in activities such as teaching them how to tie a tie.
"It's a way to engage the students' family during the school day and it's especially important for middle school students," Kristina Dove, one of the event's organisers, told ABC News.
