The holiday season is the best and worst time of year for people. For people with a lot to be grateful for it's a time of gift giving and receiving, spending time with family, taking time away from work and even going on a holiday.
But for people who have little it can be a reminder of loss, loneliness, and a time of great stress. Luckily there are still some really great people in this world who will go out of their way to make little gestures that might make somebodies holidays a little more bearable.
Below we are celebrating these people, and giving them a second of spotlight they didn't want but have definitely earned with their sometimes small, but always appreciated, acts of kindness.

I was at Walmart tonight & I saw this man w/ a cart full of stuffed animals. When I asked him why, my heart became full. He told me that every year he dresses up as Santa & walks the halls of the children’s ER & delivers one to each child. This man deserves to be recognized. pic.twitter.com/XrrtlpzWXH— Erica Lee (@erica_lee123) November 23, 2017
