New shoes

A group of Texas students came together to make sure that one of their own wouldn’t go without.

Somerset High School student J.R. Gilbert has special needs and had been wearing size 10 shoes, even though the lanky sophomore is actually a size 13, the school wrote in a Facebook post. Turns out, according to the school system, JR had been wearing the size 10 shoes because they belonged to his beloved grandfather, who could no longer wear them.

His classmates decided to raise money to buy him not one, but two new pairs of shoes for Christmas.

With cellphones recording all around, a large group of students brought Gilbert in to give him the presents before the holiday break.

After Gilbert tears the wrapping paper off the first gift, his reaction is priceless.

AWESOME!
