- When a girl saw a boy sitting alone on the curb because his peers laughed him off the basketball court she decided that she had to do something
- The boy was laughed off by his peers because of his eight year old hand-me-down shoes from his mother. His family just couldn't afford anything else
- The girl grabbed a box of shoes and presented it to the boy as her mother recorded her gracious act
Shaylynn was celebrating her 13th birthday when she saw an 11 year old boy sitting on the boardwalk alone.
The boy was laughed at by his peers on the basketball court when they saw his shoes. The reason was that 11-year-old Richard was wearing his mother’s 8 year old shoes.
The shoes were old and coming apart but Richards’s family couldn’t afford a new pair of shoes. When Shaylynn saw this sad scene she grabbed a red box from home and went straight to the boy.
The boy seems amazed that this girl is giving him a present box for nothing. He takes the box and opens it and is shocked to see a brand new pair of shoes in it.
Shaylynn’s mother, Jacqulynn, captured the touching scene on camera and said: “This is when you know you’re doing something right!”
“If I did anything right in this world I did this right,” the mother adds talking about her daughter’s upbringing.
