Asking for a better birthday present

This kid has sole.

For the third year in a row, Gunner Robinson of Wilmington, North Carolina, has asked for shoe donations instead of presents for his birthday on August 15. Each pair goes to a kid in his community who needs shoes for the upcoming school year, according to WWAY.

So far, the 10-year-old has given out 600 pairs with his organization Gunner’s Runners.

“I’ve always got shoes, like new shoes for school, nice ones, and I want other kids to get them, too,” Gunner told the outlet.

Donation boxes have been set up around Wilmington, and once all the shoes have been collected after his eleventh birthday, the family will give them to a social worker who will distribute them to kids before school starts.
