These Children Were Given the Option to Take Home Their Dream Toy or a Gift for Their Parents and Their Choices Might Surprise You

December 06, 2016

These children from the Boys and Girls Club in Atlanta were given the extremely tough decision of choosing a present for themselves or for their parents. 

After deliberation, roughly 80% of the children chose to forego a gift for themselves so that their parents could receive a gift instead.

After all, that's what it's all about anyway, isn't it?
