One Good Thing: Local boy gifts his classmates on his birthday

They needed mittens. He made sure they got them.

MIDDLEVILLE, Michigan — A little boy saw that his classmates didn't have mittens.  So, he did something about it.  And he did it on his own birthday.

According to a post on the Thornapple Kellogg Schools website, McFall Elementary student Zak realized a lot of his friends didn't have mittens to wear outside in the snow.  So, for his birthday - instead of bringing in cookies - he brought in new, knitted mittens which his mother made.  Now, everyone in Mrs. Dahlberg's kindergarten class has a pair.  Each classmate also got a card that says, "Friend... thank you for celebrating my birthday with me."  Zak's mom, Theresa says, "He's got a big heart.  He loves helping people."

Clearly, he does.  Zak... happy birthday.  You are amazing.  You get today's One Good Thing.
