Bradley Thomas is just 7 years old but he is making a significant impact in the lives of one family this week with his courage and kindness. As part of a community service project he decided to help out a family he had encountered that had lost their home and everything else in a fire earlier this year. Thomas vowed to do his best to save their Christmas and that is exactly what he is doing now.
Through a variety of activities and programs Thomas has managed to raise hundreds of dollars since the beginning of October. He has been working side jobs for neighbors, passing around donation plates at church, and just doing anything he can to help and he says that he is very happy to have what he has now. Young Bradley Thomas may have only raised a few hundred dollars and enough for a few big toys for the family he is helping, but the family all agrees that it was his acts of kindness that made the biggest difference.
All the members of the family in need say they are incredibly grateful for what he has done and will graciously accept any help he offers. The fact that Thomas cared enough about a family of strangers to spend months of his time trying to save their Christmas is a truly amazing story which will likely inspire thousands of people around the world and that is why Bradley Thomas is in the news this week.
