Cherry Hill, New Jersey was buzzing a bit more than usual this black Friday with the help of a truly admirable secret Santa. Charlie K decided to spend this year’s black Friday giving rather than buying for himself. Arriving at the Toys “R” Us in town, Charlie and his son happily surprised the store and its shoppers when he picked up the tab for 60 layaway orders, totaling over $10,000.
This heartwarming act was inspired by Charlie’s love for his community and wanting to fulfill some Christmas wishes for people. The Cherry Hill community is so glad to have someone like this to look up to and be thankful for this season. Families in the store who witnessed this remarked at how incredible this act of kindness was, and were inspired by Charlie’s desire to make others happy.
One lucky woman named Stephanie Dawson came to the store to find out she was one of the customer’s whose order was paid for by Charlie. This meant seven gifts for all of her grandchildren. Others who stepped forward say it’s been the best feeling to find out their secret Santa was looking out for them, and are so thankful.
“I’m trying to bring some happiness to people, to the community that brought happiness to me and my family,” he told CBS 3. “I love this community and I am trying to provide back to it.” – Charlie K.
In addition to this generous gesture, Charlie also purchased $2,000 worth of items to donate for Toys for Tots. Thank you for being Cherry Hill’s holiday angel this year, Charlie. To all our readers, as 2017’s Christmas season approaches and you remember all that you’re grateful for, what is one small act of kindness you can do to change a life?
