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

Published

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.

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.”

With nearly endless coverage of all the chaos and violence bombarding us on network news, not to mention the whole fight over mask mandates, coronavirus safety measures, and everything else happening in the world, it can be easy to think there’s no goodness left in the world. Of course, as long as Jesus Christ is on the throne we know that’s not true, but sometimes, you just need to be reminded that He’s still at work in the world around us. And He is, folks. He truly is. That’s why we need to hear stories like the following. Apparently, a single mom who lost her job during the lockdown over coronavirus, has donated lottery winnings to a police officer that was shot in the line of duty. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Shetara Sims lost her job amid the coronavirus pandemic and had $7 to her name, local outlet WITN reported Tuesday. She found a $1 bill in a grocery store parking lot, bought a scratch-off ticket, and won $100. Her daughter, Rakiya Edmonson, suggested they donate the money to an officer who was shot on the job on July 2 and remains in the intensive care unit. “She won $100, and I said we should donate it to the police officer that got shot for his family to go eat and see him,” Edmonson said. Sims agreed with her daughter and said she was motivated to donate because of the empathy officers had shown her following her sister’s 2012 murder. Sims went on to discuss how detectives were really there for her and her family during that difficult season of life. “The detectives were really there for us. They were there for us more than anyone I can imagine. They did things they didn’t have to…

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.
