Good Deed

Matt Busbice, the 42-year-old owner of sporting goods store Buck Feather in Baton Rouge, LA, says he has never felt richer than he did the day he received a single dollar. It all started with a fire alarm going off in his condo complex, so he shot out of bed, threw on some clothes and went outside. Turns out there wasn’t a fire, so even though he was wearing mismatched clothes and looked a little unkept, he decided to go out for a cup of coffee. As he was about to enter the coffee shop, Matt stepped to the corner of the patio to pray. When he opened his eyes, he saw 9-year-old Kelvin Ellis Jr. coming towards him with his fist closed. Then he said to Matt, "'If you're homeless, here's a dollar. I always wanted to help a homeless person.” Matt was so moved, he ended up giving Kelvin a 40 second shopping spree to pick out whatever he wanted in Buck Feather, including a new bike. You can see the video story right now. And here’s the kicker… Kelvin had just gotten that dollar for getting good grades, and the first thing he wanted to do was help someone else. That definitely has to make you smile!
