Parents of young kids know what it's like to have their homes completely overrun with toys. Often, parents might toss a toy in the trash or threaten to throw them out. But a six-year-old boy in Florida had a much better idea.
Blake Work decided to get to work on clearing his house of unwanted toys and set up a stand in front of his house offering free toys to kids in need. Blake's lemonade-type stand was surrounded by a pile of toys and a sign which read, "Cheer up, kids! Come to Blake Work’s house.
We have free toys for you!” Blake's mom, Melissa, explained, "He was overwhelmed with all the toys and we talked about those toys being blessings. We explained to him that not every kid gets to have toys like that, if any.
That really hurt his heart. Then he said, 'I have an idea.'" Melissa posted the free toy stand on various garage sale websites and then handed out toys, games and books for hours. Any toy that wasn't taken was donated to Blake's school.

NBA Star Gives 100-Year-Old Fan Game Ball On Her Birthday
All-Star James Harden is one of the best players in the NBA this year. While he’s mostly known for his basketball skills and his outrageous beard, he should also be known for his kindheartedness as he recently gave a 100-year-old fan a game ball on her birthday.
Doris Burke spent her 100th birthday at a Houston Rockets game, sitting courtside. Harden noticed that she just kept smiling, enjoying the game. And when he learned it was her special day, Harden said he just had to go give her the game ball. Harden signed the ball, took photos and spent some time with Doris, reportedly telling her how "blessed" he was to be able to have a chance to meet her.
