  • Unbelievable- thank you for bringing me to tears this morning not over something horrible or bad but for seeing Goodness and Kindness being front and center to a person who has grown into an amazing individual. I hope your acts of kindness spurted others along the way. Thank you. - 4/6/2016 9:31:24 AM

  • What a wonderful young man. I hope everyone that sees this video feels inspired to pay it forward with random acts of kindness. - 10/21/2015 12:51:58 AM
  • What a fantastic young man and message. All simple things that add up to so much. What really got me was the apples for the workers who didn't get a job that day. I am glad I watched this and will take a lesson from it. The beauty is in the simplicity and heart. - 10/20/2015 6:53:49 PM
    I'd love to know what country this was in. (Obviously not America. Hint 1) Orphanage, 2) Reference to Eid, 3) License plates, 4) Arabic script throughout, etc.) I suppose I'll attribute it to a nebulous country in the Middle East. I'm glad this guy is setting the example. - 10/20/2015 1:55:22 PM
