Child asks for blankets instead of Xbox for Christmas

Child asks for blankets instead of Xbox for Christmas

It's a lesson in giving that will last a lifetime.

A young OH boy whose family was once homeless chose to give up his thoughts of an Xbox One for Christmas and instead use the money to buy blankets for the less fortunate. "When they gave him a blanket, he had to give it back", said Terry Brant, Mikah's grandmother.

"Your friend Mikah." Word of his selflessness reached Microsoft which planned an incredible surprise for the remarkable boy. Since then Microsoft got wind of Mikah's selflessness and wanted to repay his kindness.

Access is the same charity that gave them a place to stay until the family was able to get back on their feet.

When he turned up at the mall, he was greeted by employees of the store and Santa who handed him two bags full of gifts.

The boy sifted through the presents and began to cry.

Mikah, along with his mother and father, spent a few weeks at an emergency shelter after the family lost their home about three years ago, his mother, Sara Brown, told Fox 8. "And so the first thing he wanted to do was give a blanket that they could keep".

Now the same shelter that helped Mikah's family is distributing his donated blankets with a special note from him attached to each one.
