Shining Example of Unselfishness

The bad news from the fiscal cliff and other political pains have no place in our psyche on Christmas Eve, so we post this story about an 8 year old boy who gives us an example of unselfishness. This was previously posted on The Blaze and titled: 8 Year Old Boy Receives 500 Presents for His Birthday But Goes Home With Zero — Find Out Why

When Chase Branscum turned 8-years-old, he received more than 500 gifts at his birthday extravaganza. However, he left his party with none of them.

Young Chase instead decided to give all of his presents away to help other local boys and girls through a Toys for Tots toy drive.

“I already have toys and other kids don’t,” he told FOX23. “They don’t have toys and when they have anything for Christmas they can’t play and they can’t have fun.”

Chase’s party was held on Dec. 9 at the Rejoice Church North Campus gymnasium in Owasso, Okla. and more than 100 guests showed up to celebrate with him.

The boy’s mom says she was proud of her son for his selfless giving on his birthday. She added that Chase’s gesture was a “gift” to her.

“He has a wonderful heart,” Tiffany Rowe, Chase’s mom, said. “You want to raise your child to be generous and to think of someone other than themselves.”
