(WTNH) — Thirty blankets for the homeless.
His grandmother was ready to buy him an Xbox One, but he passed on it and asked her to spend the $300 on blankets instead.
When Microsoft caught wind of the story, the the company surprised Mikah Frye with the gaming system he sacrificed.
His grandmother says Mikah’s family once faced homelessness, so he knows what it’s like.
“He knew what it was like to not have a blanket at night and to have to give it back. When they gave him a blanket, he had to give it back,” Terry Brant said. “And so the first thing he wanted to do was give a blanket that they could keep.”
Employees at the Microsoft store also game Mikah plenty of games and accessories to go with his gift.
