These Children Had No Christmas, Until One Man Played Santa!
An anonymous Goodwill Christmas Donor bought all of the toys in the kids section and decided to donate them to kids in need
An anonymous figure in Colorado has once again purchased all the toys at a Fort Collins Goodwill so the town can make sure no kid goes without gifts on Christmas. This person, or persons, has been doing this for years and their act of kindness has been somewhat of a Christmas tradition.
The anonymous donor said he does not need recognition for his act of kindness, but said that this day has become an important part of his family’s Christmas festivities. I wish I was in this type of position to purchase presents for kids in need because it seems like a wonderful way to help others during the Christmas season.
Raw acts of kindness like this just solidify once again that this country is not as bad as we see on TV. We have angels of all colors and sizes, and they live among us. These angels help and watch over us with the specific goal of keeping us happy and smiling, just like these kids on Christmas.
From the Coloradoan:
Store staff members set aside extra toys in the days leading up to the surprise giveaway to make sure that no child left empty handed on Saturday. Wakefield was especially excited about a large donation of brand-new educational books, neatly stacked on shelves next to the store’s toy bins.
Wakefield was the store manager at the Fort Collins Goodwill the first year the anonymous donor walked through the doors and asked to buy out the toy section. Even though Wakefield has since taken a job at Goodwill’s corporate office, he made a point to come to this year’s event, he said.
“We’ve got some amazing people throughout our community,” he said.
I wish I could give more to those less fortunate, and one day I might just be in the position to do so. Hopefully, my positive thoughts are good enough for now. These little children need hope and love, and giving them gifts to remind them they are not forgotten is a great thing for their spirits
This story reminds me that Christmas is the season of giving, and we can all do more to help those in need! I am going to make sure to find ways to give back and provide some Christmas cheer to others!
