In an amazing show of generosity, 8-year-old Chase Branscum decided to celebrate his 8th birthday by giving away all of his birthday presents to charity.
“I already have toys and other kids don’t,” Chase explained of his decision to start a toy drive for Toys for Tots.
After hearing about Chase’s birthday bash, local business Red Dot Laser Tag decided to open their doors and host Chase’s party. Each person who came and donated a toy to Owasso Toys for Tots will be treated to free snacks and a laser tag game.
The result? Over 500 presents were received just in time for the busy holiday season.
“You want to raise your child to be generous and to think of someone other than themselves,” Chase’s proud mom Tiffany Rowe said. “Him doing this was a gift to me.”
The heartwarming story above calls to mind the boy who donates all his winnings to his neighbor suffering from leukemia, as well as a boy who gives away his Disneyworld tickets to a family of a fallen soldier.
Hats off to these new heroes.
