Notes & Transcripts

A Georgia student gave the Christmas spirit a whole new meaning when he recently won a $160 tablet from a school fundraiser. When 9-year-old Jarrett Wilson won a brand new Galaxy tablet, he immediately cashed it in and used the money to buy gifts for children on his school’s angel tree. Jarrett bought a blanket to keep a little girl warm, some books to make an 11 year-old-boy smile, and some toy trucks for another child. He used coupons and sales to turn his prize valued at $160 into more than $300 worth of merchandise. When asked why he chose to give to others rather than keep his prize, Jarrett said, “Giving is the right thing to do…because you know that another kid might really, really need it.”—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell
