This 8-Year-Old’s Annual Christmas Tradition of Giving Puts Most Adults to Shame

Published

on

For the average elementary school-aged kid, birthday presents are something eagerly looked forward to. For one little girl in Pocatello, Idaho, the most exciting thing about her birthday gifts is giving each and every one of them away—something she’s done two years in a row.

Kaydence Cluff has always had a heart for giving and blessing others, her mother Kasey shared with the Idaho State Journal.

“She always wants to buy and do things for other people,” Kasey said of her daughter, who began giving away her birthday gifts when she was just eight years old. “We’re certainly proud of her.”

“I felt just pure pride. It’s a proud parent moment to know that your child wants to give, not receive.”

“I know a lot of kids don’t get presents,” Kaydence shared with the newspaper, “and I just wanted to make a difference and help other kids get toys.”

Instead of the usual mountain of birthday presents many kids are fortunate to receive, Kaydence asked only for new, unwrapped toys to donate to Toys for Tots.

This gold-hearted little girl also spent over $100 of her birthday money this year to buy toys on Black Friday, the State Journal noted, “ranging from baby dolls for younger children to remote control cars and scooters for older children.”

Kaydence shared that she was able to donate twice as many toys this year, and the nine-year-old already has big goals for the good she’ll do on her tenth birthday: “Next year I’m thinking of doing Toys for Tots and the children’s hospital.”

As the donation site for Toys For Tots in Pocatello, the staff at the Courtesy Ford dealership shone the spotlight on Kaydence and gave her a bit of well-deserved public praise for her generosity.

This little girl has a special place in our hearts! Pocatello’s own, Kaydence Cluff, celebrated her 9th birthday…

For Kaydence, the sky is the limit when it comes to giving to the less fortunate. “I’m going to try to do it every year and give more every year,” she said. “That’s my goal.”

Don’t worry, though. Kaydence didn’t end her birthday without a little something for herself. “I told [my family] they could also bring a present for me if they wanted to,” she said. “But that’s their choice.”

Dog in Thailand with Three Legs Hailed as Hero After Saving Abandoned Newborn

And he did it all with only three legs.

We don’t deserve dogs. Sure, that has been said thousands of times over throughout the course of modern history, but the logic is still difficult to argue with even with all of that preparation. These creatures, after tens of thousands of years as our only true companion animal, have evolved into not only being fairly well dependent on us, but also to love us unconditionally, and in ways that we could only dream about. New research even suggests that owning dogs has altered the human genetic code, and that being a “dog person” is something that a DNA test can reveal. Furthermore, dogs are kind and caring in ways that we may never be able to replicate as a more sentient animal. Take the case of a peculiar pup in Thailand who this week saved a newborn baby from an unfathomable fate at the hands of its mother. A dog in northern Thailand has rescued a newborn baby after it was buried alive, allegedly by its teenage mother. The baby boy is said to have been abandoned by his mother, 15, to hide her pregnancy from her parents. Ping Pong the dog was barking and digging in a field in Ban Nong Kham village. Its owner says he then noticed a baby’s leg sticking out of the earth. Locals rushed the baby to hospital where doctors cleaned him up and declared he was healthy. Ping Pong, despite having lost a leg in a car accident, has always been a good boy. Ping Pong’s owner, Usa Nisaikha, says it lost the use of one of its legs after being hit by a car. He told Khaosod Newspaper: “I kept him because he’s so loyal and obedient, and always helps me out when I go to the fields to tend to my cattle.…

MUST SEE: Enormous Gorillas Turn into Scaredy Cats in Hilarious Viral Video

The hilarious clip is something that almost all of us can relate to.

When it comes to the animal kingdom, there are few beasts more frightening than those in the gorilla family. Their sheer strength is conveyed by their hulking and brutally-muscled bodies, which are capable of producing power at a rate nine times that of man.  Scientists have indicated that a Silverback Gorilla may be capable of lifting up to 1.800 pounds of dead weight. That’s nearly the curb weight of a ultra-compact car. Knowing what we know about these creatures, it stands to reason that almost nothing in the natural world would disturb or deter them…. ….except for maybe a little rain. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8c0YlhgUNFU These gorillas from a zoo in South Carolina have met their match in rain shower, in the above clip which has gone viral this week. The prancing primates were all the rage on Twitter as well. https://twitter.com/cwwaters/status/1127678279740268545 https://twitter.com/MaireCervenak/status/1127533108130189313 https://twitter.com/pg21707/status/1127477442157871105 Some have pointed out, however, that wild gorilla will enjoy a good rain from time to time, leading some to believe that these apes may just be a bit spoiled. https://twitter.com/immellocker/status/1127492640293957633
