For nine-year-old Mikah Frye, from Ohio, USA, this year’s holiday season will be a memorable one. This year Mikah decided to help the needy and for the same, he had to give up his Xbox and he did so happily and donated blankets to the people who are wandering in the cold. In an often self-centered world, his act of giving away his Christmas gift for the needy was highly praised by everyone. His selfless gesture caught the attention of Microsoft as well and the company wanted to repay his love and kindness. The Company decided to give the young lad not only just the Minecraft based Xbox One x but also a bag full of extra games, accessories and other gifts.
“When they called and told me I was just instantly crying on the phone and I couldn’t believe it. What’s harder was not telling him,” Mikah’s grandmother Terry Brant told Fox 8. “He knew what it was like to not have a blanket at night and have to give it back. So the first thing he wanted to do is give a blanket that they could keep,” she added. Frye along with the blankets also included handwritten notes for each person receiving the same.
The note read: “They gave me a blanket, but I had to leave it. That’s why I want you to have your own blanket … Today, I live in my own house, and someday you will too. Your friend Mikah. Mikah was called in one of the Microsoft stores to collect his gifts. He was very nicely welcomed by the Microsoft’s staff and the Santa Claus handed over him the gifts: Here is the heart touching video:
There was a time when Mikah’s parents a few years ago had lost their home and stayed at an emergency shelter for few weeks. The same shelter, named Ashland Church Community Emergency Shelter Services, is handing out donated blankets.”Not only will they have a nice warm blanket that they get to keep, everybody will get a blanket, but they’re wrapped in Christ’s love as well as Mikah’s love,” said the executive director of shelter services.
