Six-year-old Joseph was very upset when he heard that Brandon Jacobs was no longer with the New York Giants.

When he asked his mother why his favorite player was no longer on his favorite team, she explained that it was a money issue.

Joseph decided to help.

He gave his mother $3.36 and asked her to send it to Jacobs with a note attached.

The note read:

"Dear Brandon Jacobs,

So you could go to the Giants, here is my money."

Love, Joe."

Jacobs, who now plays for the San Francisco 49ers, was very touched.

He tweeted the above photo and wrote: "I almost cried, I am still trying to hold it in. I may have to pay him a surprise visit."
