7-year-old uses birthday money to help homeless on Thanksgiving

A 7-year-old boy from 休斯顿 used his birthday money to help feed the homeless on Thanksgiving.

Dylan Virtudazo’s birthday party was canceled in August due to the 新冠病毒 大流行, so he received some cash instead. Initially unsure how to spend it, he came up with the idea when his teachers asked students about their plans for Thanksgiving, as local news outlet KHOU-11 first reported.

She brought up a time in August when Houston was under a hurricane watch and her son showed her a handful of coins, saying he wanted to give them to the homeless for hurricane supplies after overhearing his parents talk about the supplies they needed for hurricane prep.

During trips to the grocery store, Dylan always makes sure that if he gets candy, his brothers and sisters do, 太, even if they don’t come to the store. That selfless attitude is what led Dylan to use his birthday money to createblessing bagsfor the homeless.

Extra donations from educators gave him enough money to pay for 50 of them, KHOU-11 reported.

“我们 [gave away] 所有 50 bags,” Virtudazo said. “We wish we brought a lot more.
