“Attention, Kids, Today Only You can Take Home One Toy for Free”

In December 2013, an anonymous male Good Samaritan bought the entire kids toy section of the Goodwill at 315 Pavilion Lane in Fort Collins, Colorado. The man has done this for a few years, always around Christmas. Goodwill store manager Todd Wakefield announced over the loudspeaker, “Attention, kids, today only you can take home one toy for free.” Vanessa Clark, Goodwill of Denver’s director of public relations, said about the Good Samaritan, “We applaud this gentleman, and all of our donors and supporters at the holidays and all year long.” Joel Espinosa, age seven, went to the part of the store that had stuffed animals and selected a white Christmas bear to take home. A mother who heard Mr. Wakefield’s announcement on the loudspeaker told her young daughter, “Did you hear that? You get to pick out a toy.” She paused and then added, “Because you’ve been so good today.”
