9 Year Old Donates Disney Trip to Family of Fallen Soldier
Brendan Haas Donates Disney Prize: Disney Gives Him His Own Trip
The generosity of this 9 year-old will knock your socks off.
Meet Brendan Haas, who won a trip to Disney World, but gave it away instead to the family of a fallen soldier.
It doesn't get much more good-hearted than that.
Haas has won over many for his amazing act of kindness to a military family.
Haas won the Disney World trip through a program he and his mom set up on Facebook called "A Soldier for a Soldier," where he traded items up for bigger items. He started with a toy soldier and kept trading until he got the Disney trip.
Rather than take the prize for his own family, he said he wanted to donate the trip to a worthy recipient. Families submitted nominees through Facebook and via email and Haas drew the name of Liberty Hope Steele, the two-year-old daughter of fallen soldier Timothy Steele.
Haas came to Timothy Steele's family home on Memorial Day to give them the prize.
Haas said of his generous donation, "I think it would make them a lot happier."
This story has an even happier ending, as the nine-year-old was given a Disney trip of his own for his family on Good Morning America. He more than deserves it, given his generosity.
In a twist, Haas said, "We can't accept a trip to Disney but we have many more people who would like to have an all-expenses paid [trip] ... so we can do another raffle."
This kid is something!
