After getting into an argument with his mom, 13-year-old Cameron decides to call the police. Ready to run away, he tells the officers he doesn't want to live in his house anymore. Police officer Acerra arrives at the scene, and immediately begins having a heart-to-heart conversation with the distraught boy. He starts reminding Cameron how great he has it in his current situation. A family, a roof over his head, food in his mouth; there's quite a bit to be thankful for. When he steps inside Cameron's home, the officer realizes the boy's room is missing a few things that most kids have and that many of us take for granted - such as a real bed.
Caring about the well-being and overall happiness of this teenager, Officer Acerra begins his mission to help Cameron however he can. With a servant's heart, he sets out to fill the room with furniture that the boy can call his own, providing him with a desk, chair, television, and queen-sized bed. Surprisingly the gifts don't end there. Another kind soul even donates a Wii game system. Cameron now has a comfy place to lay his head, a spot to do his homework, and a fun room in which to play video games with his friends.
Cameron is blessed beyond measure by all the generous gifts showered upon him by a complete stranger. Through it all, each has gained a forever-friend, one that Cameron knows he can call anytime. This officer's actions have made an impact not only on Cameron's life but also on the millions of people who have viewed this story. He did it out of the kindness of his heart and not for selfish gain. As Officer G. Acerra states, "I didn't do this for publicity or to get people to notice me. I did it because I could, and it was the right thing to do, and I think people should do things like this." It's an inspiring story that you must see for yourself!
