A Story Of Kindness That Will Make You Cry

Nine-year-old Brendan Haas, who spent three months trading things so he could win a vacation to Disney World and then gave it away to a girl whose father was killed in Afghanistan, was surprised with his own Walt Disney World trip. But instead of accepting the trip, Brendan said he wanted to pay it forward yet again and that he’d be able to find another family of a fallen soldier who deserves it.

“We can’t accept a trip to Disney but we have many more people who would like to have an all-expenses paid [trip] …so we can do another raffle,”. In February, Brendan set up a Facebook page called “A Soldier for a Soldier,” hoping that he could trade his toy soldier for a trip to Disney World to give to a fallen soldier’s family. Brendan said he posted his toy soldier one night, and the next morning, people immediately responded with hundreds of offers. He swapped through a NASCAR toy, a weekend ski vacation, and just before Memorial Day, he got what he wanted: an all-expenses paid trip to Disney World. he then put a bunch of names of military families that he’d gathered from Facebook into a hat, and pulled out the name of 2-year-old Liberty Hope Steele. Brendan soon surprised her family with the trip to Disney World. Liberty Steele’s 25-year-old father – Army Lieutenant Timothy Steele – was killed last August in Afghanistan. Disney will also upgrade the Steele’s family vacation, rolling out the red carpet for them on their visit.
