    Teen Donates Savings to Unemployed Stranger

    Saving up for something you really want–whether it’s an upcoming vacation or a coveted new purse–is a practice we’re probably all familiar with. But what if you met someone along the way who needed the cash more than you? That’s what happened to 14-year-old Artem Smao. The teen was selling newspaper subscriptions to save up for a skiing trip to Tahoe…that is, until he knocked on Robynn Fried’s front door.

    Upon asking Fried if she’d like to subscribe to the local paper, Smao found out that his California neighbor was unemployed and two weeks away from becoming homeless. She explained that she’d be unable to help him out with a donation. The teen immediately offered her his envelope of cash.

    “That’s just something you don’t expect out of kids these days,” Fried told the Lodi News-Sentinal. “He was trying to win a trip to Tahoe, so when you’re trying to earn something, it’s really unbelievable to have that person turn around and offer what they’re trying to earn.”

    In an awesome turn of events, Fried was offered a job shortly after and has since said that she wants to take the 14-year-old out to dinner in order to thank him. Watch the video below for the news story on the event:

    What do you girls think about this random act of kindness? Would you have reacted the same way? What have you done (or hope to do) in order to help those in your community? Sound off in the comments below!
