A Grieving Orphan Makes It His Mission to Get Other People to Smile
By the age of six, Jaden Hayes had lost both of his parents in a short period. Understandably devastated, Jaden grieved both of these deaths. One day, he asked his aunt to buy a bunch of little toys and bring him to downtown Savannah, Georgia near his home, so that he could give them away. He simply wanted to see people smile. Not only did people smile, but they gave him a lot of hugs—and he made it his goal to make 33,000 people smile. Now 8 years old, this generous kid says that time has helped him get from a sad place to a happy place.
