Buffalo Bills player buys random kid at Galleria mall new sneakers

Last night Lori Stearns took her 14-year-old son Mikey to the Galleria Mall for new sneakers he had been begging for, but what happened next was the biggest surprise.

“When trying on the sneakers , I noticed a man waiting behind us to cash out. He asked me if I liked the sneakers and my response was, ‘No way, they are too expensive!’ He then came over to my son and said the sneakers were on him! We both said thank you, but that’s absolutely not necessary. He insisted on treating Mikey to the sneakers. The salesman then took the sneakers to the register where the generous stranger introduced himself as #16 Robert Foster from the Buffalo Bills! He said he was very thankful and paying it forward. It made my young man’s night, Christmas, and definitely one beautiful memory he will carry into adulthood! So we just wanted to thank you Robert for being so thoughtful and wishing you a very merry Christmas from the Stearns family of West Seneca!”

How beautiful is that?
