So no one is left out

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - ENTERTAINMENT -

A friend’s daugh­ter, Lisa, wanted to teach her four-year-old daugh­ter the im­por­tance of shar­ing, par­tic­u­larly at this time of the year. Lisa de­cided they would do­nate to the pro­gram that gives shoe­boxes full of toys and other items to dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren.

Af­ter a day of choos­ing gifts, wrap­ping them and putting them into the boxes, my friend asked her grand­daugh­ter what she was do­ing.

The lit­tle girl said “Well, Grandma, I’m giv­ing presents to the bad girls and boys.” When asked why she was giv­ing to the bad chil­dren the lit­tle girl sim­ply replied “Santa gives presents to all the good girls and boys.”

I don’t know if this qual­i­fies as an act of kind­ness, but I think it does show that this young child is very com­pas­sion­ate.
