Christmas truly is a time for giving and joy, no matter the plight of the world around us, and tales of the good deeds of men and women around the nation often seem to be amplified by the holiday itself.
This year, one of the most heartwarming stories of the season comes to us from Georgia, where a young man decided to forego presents for himself this year, and give to the less fortunate in a big way.
Brycen Gault recently celebrated his eleventh birthday, and wanted to use the special occasion to pay it forward, WJBF reports.
With a little help from his mom Lakeya Collins, Brycen used the $150 he received in birthday bucks to buy 20 meals from Chick-fil-A. From there, the Evans family gave out the food to the homeless in Augusta.take our poll - story continues below
“As we were pulling away from feeding the homeless for his birthday, he said, ‘Mom do you feel that?'” Collins recalled. “I said ‘feel what?’ He said, ‘Those chills from God.’”
Chick-fil-A made sure to recognize the kindhearted youngster.
Chick-fil-A caught wind of Gault’s good deed, and invited the boy to their Atlanta headquarters to film a yet-unveiled commercial. WJBF reported that the hit is expected to premiere in January – so stay tuned.
The world could certainly use a few more Brycen Gault’s right about now.
