Sometimes things can get rough and the world seems like a bit of a cruel place especially for this young boy, Shawn Hawkins, who had his 3DS stolen from him.
Lucky for Shawn though, his unfortunate circumstance allowed the world to see that the world is still indeed a nice place as his schoolmates in Antioch High School decided to pitch in money to get him a new 3DS.

“We go to Antioch High School. I saw this message that Shawn Hawkins wrote on our white board, through a series of Snapchats my friends were posting. The announcement that Shawn wrote on the board, was basically him begging for his 3DS XL back; and that he would not tell anyone if it was returned, that it means a lot—it was a gift from his grandma. So, I posted on Snapchat an announcment(sic) that I was gonna collect cash donations at school, and to come find me if you want to make a donation to Shawn Hawkins for a new 3DS. I then asked my favorite teacher, Ms. Grimm, if she’d like to make a donation… She told me that she’ll go out that very night and buy it; raise whatever money I can raise by the next morning, and she’ll pay whatever difference there is! The next morning, my friend, Piper, wrapped the gift. When we went to go give Shawn the gift, Ms. Grimm asked us to record it, so Piper did so on her phone.”
In this season of giving, while it is great to bask in a pool of gifts, remember that there are always the unfortunate ones out there who may require our kindness.
