It started like any other day when Alyssa Hacker, of Coweta, Oklahoma headed to Target with her young son, Owen. As they waited for the child’s grandma to arrive, Owen began playing with some stuffed dinosaurs. Owen and Mama were debating over which of the three dinosaurs to buy, when what unfolded next was something neither could have predicted.

After a brief introduction, an older gentleman passing by began playing dinosaurs with Owen. As they were wrapping up, the stranger revealed $20 from his wallet and gave it to the boy. “I just lost my two-year-old grandson last week. You take this money and buy this boy all three dinosaurs,” he said.

As the South recovers from Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma, this small act is a powerful reminder that you don’t have to do something over-the-top to make a big difference. Kudos to this kindhearted grandpa!
