A 6-year-old boy named Joe wanted his New York Giants favorite running back Brandon Jacobs (pictured) to stay on with his team and not move to the San Francisco 49ers, so he broke open his piggy bank, placed his $3.36 savings into a baggy, and mailed it to Jacobs along with a letter hoping that the money would convince him not to leave his favorite team, reports the New York Daily News.

The child’s mom, Julie Armento, helped her son compose a letter to Jacobs, since the child is only now learning how to write.  Joe was inspired to send Jacobs the money and letter because he learned that the player left the Giants in pursuit of a more lucrative contract; he thought that his money would help to secure his position with the East Coast NFL team.

Dear Brandon Jacobs, So you could go to the Giants, here is my money.
Love, Joe.
After Jacobs, who says he “almost cried”  upon receiving  Joe’s money and letter,  tweeted a picture of both items, he asked fans for their opinion of the child’s thoughtful actions.
On Thursday, Jacobs tweeted that he would take both his 5-year-old son and Joe to a Chuck E. Cheese to make up for his leaving the Giants and disappointing his young fan.  The player also promised to make good on the money that was sent.  Although Jacobs wants to hold on to the letter and sandwiched-bagged money as a keepsake, he said the money Joe sent to him would be repaid but not in the exact amount.
