Being kind is one of the best things in life… not only does it make you feel good, but it can change the life of someone who has maybe been used to people not being so nice.}
This Heartwarming footage had emerged of two high school students donating clothes to one of their classmates who had been bullied his ‘entire life’.
The two boys from MLK College Preparatory High School, Memphis, gifted new clothes and shoes as well as some of their own belongings to freshman Michael Todd. Michael had been picked on for weeks after wearing the same outfit every day, so the pair knew they had to do something.

Michael said he was “shocked” by the boys kind gesture and thanked the two football players, Kristopher Graham and Antwan Garrett, for wanting to be kind and for helping him.
The pair of boys approached Michael, emptied out bags filled with shirts, shorts, shoes and more and Michael was left stunned.
“It was awesome, the best day of my entire life basically. I was very happy. I was shocked completely. You guys are awesome.”
Kristopher admitted that he felt the need to apologise to Michael after laughing at him during class.
“We was in the same third period. I said, ‘I apologize for laughing at you and I wanna give something to you to make it up’ . . . When I saw people laugh at him and bully him, I felt like I needed to do something.”
“It was a weak moment for me, I was crying.”
The amazing video has since inspired other students to do the same.
One little eight-year-old Christian Moore saw Connor Crites alone, crying in the playground so he rushed straight over to make sure he was ok, holding his hand, heading to class together.
Christian had no idea at the time that his new friend had autism. Little Connor had been overwhelmed at Minneha Elementary School in Kansas and had struggled to take it all in.
Connor says his new friends kindness helped him overcome his first-day nerves and they are now best friends.
“He was kind to me. I was in the first day of school and I started crying then he helped me and I was happy. He found me and held my hand and I got happy tears.”
