This video of underprivileged kids choosing family over Christmas gifts will melt your heart

A new video showing kids from low income families having to choose between a Christmas gift for themselves or their parents is going  viral and melting hearts across the world.

In “The Other Christmas Gift” video, five kids from Atlanta are asked what they want for Christmas. An Xbox, a barbie house, a laptop, a toy truck, they reply before being asked what they think their parents would want.

The kids are then presented with both presents, however are given the option of only choosing one to take home.


Ultimately all of the children chose to take home the gift for their parents instead of themselves, with one stating: “Legos don’t matter. Your family matters. It’s either family or Legos, and I choose family.”

At the end of the video, which is warming the hearts of thousands on social media, the children are told that they can actually take home both presents.
