‘Tis the season to be a slightly better person.

In the same vein as that kid who won tacos for the homeless, some whippersnappers from a merchandise company and YouTube channel called For Human Peoples took to the streets of California to spread some holiday cheer. They distributed backpacks to homeless people in the area, which were filled with shirts, socks, notebooks, Subway gifts cards and other items.

One recipient said “That’s like God’s gift to me.” Cue the waterworks.

The video is part of a show called “Random Acts” that, according to their YouTube page, “is a show based on the simple idea that small acts of humanity can make the world a better place.” Indeed.

(Also, if you’re looking for a backpack company that aims to do good 24/7/365 in our communities, a company called STATE Bags launched to “address the immediate needs of American children living in underfunded communities. For every STATE backpack purchased, STATE hand-delivers one to an American child in need; but it doesn’t stop there.”)
