Microsoft surprises OH boy who gave up Xbox to help homeless

WATCH: Boy who gave up Xbox for Christmas to help homeless gets big surprise

It's the season for feelgood stories and there is none better than that of 9-year old Mikah Frye's, who made a decision to give up his planned Christmas present of an Xbox One to buy 60 blankets for the homeless. In an often self-centered world, his act of giving away his Christmas gift for the needy was highly praised by everyone.

Frye's tears followed soon after he was led to the rear of a Microsoft Store, through lines of applauding employees, to receive his early holiday gifts-and meet Santa, of course.

So they did and over sixty blankets have been given out through a local charity called Access.

In the first phase of elections, the polling was conducted on 89 seats in the areas falling under Saurashtra and South Gujarat. As of 8:45 am, 45 minutes after counting commenced, the BJP was leading in 72 constituencies and the Congress in 52.

Microsoft caught wind of Frye's generosity, Fox 8 reported Saturday, and made a decision to set up a surprise for him: a limited edition Minecraft-themed Xbox One X from none other than Santa himself. His grandmother suggested that he give up a Christmas present so that he could give someone a blanket. And Frye did a bit more than just buy some blankets for them to distribute; he also included handwritten notes for each person receiving a blanket.

The note read: "They gave me a blanket, but I had to leave it. And so the first thing he wanted to do was give a blanket that they could keep", Terry Brant, Mikah's grandmother, said. What are your views on this kid's gesture and Microsoft's special surprise?

"It was about three years ago, we hit some financial problems, me and my husband and Mikah we ended up losing our home", said Frye's mother, Sara Brown."We stayed there for just a few weeks until we found a new place to live". Having been in dire straits before, Frye decided that he was going to give the homeless a blanket that they could keep. Let us know in comments below.
