3 boys unaware they were being filmed helping an elderly man gets rewarded for their good deed

A man spotted three young boys doing a good deed and filmed it and uploaded it to TikTok. The footage is now going viral and inspiring many others online.

At the time, the boys didn’t know that someone was watching them as they helped an elderly man who had just gotten off a bus.

Richard Allen, Philadelphia, was sitting in the back of his car when the bus pulled in front. He sat down with his phone and saw three boys help the man who was clearly struggling to carry his bag and walker.


Richard immediately recorded the touching scene on his phone and pressed Record.

“I was on my phone, and I noticed a bus pulled over,” he said. “And I see a group of kids helping an elderly man. I said, ‘Wow! This is what I need to record.’”

The kind-hearted boys helped the man to get to his walker without being asked. He was assisted by two boys on each side, while the youngest boy held the walker.

After making sure he had a good grip with his walker and that his bags were secure, they continued their journey.

However, Richard couldn’t just let it end there. He got out of the car and called the three boys to thank them. He each gave them some money and thanked them for their efforts.

Surely, the boys didn’t perform the kind act to be noticed; it just came out of the goodness of their hearts.

Richard captured the moment and shared it via TikTok so others could witness their compassion. He hopes to inspire young people by showing compassion to those in need.

“That is what we are supposed to teach our younger generation and it’s awesome that he acknowledged and reinforced that. They will never forget that.”

“What warms my heart is they would have done it with out the motivation of $$$.”

“I hope their parents see this because they are doing something right. These boys just brought tears to my eyes because their kindness is so beautiful.”
