Would You Give Your Jacket Up To A Child In Need?
September 17, 2014
Imagine that you're sitting at the bus stop, a fresh blanket of snow covers the ground. Next to you is a young boy, perhaps nine or ten years old, who is without a jacket, shivering in the cold. Do you give up your jacket for the boy? Do you sacrifice your own comfort for the comfort of someone else?
A Norwegian organization put this situation into play to see how passersby would react. The short film was created in an effort to raise money for children in Syria who cannot afford to buy clothing. Hidden cameras observed bystanders interact with the boy at the bus stop, all of whom were willing to give up their coat to help. The heartwarming video is in another language, but it really speaks for itself.
You can watch the touching clip down below. It begs the question: how would you react in this scenario?
