13-Year-old girl steps up after seeing a young boy being bullied for wearing old shoes.
As 13-year-old, Shaylynn Hampton, watched a basketball game from her porch, something terrible happened. One of the players, a 10-year-old boy, had his shoes fall apart during the game.
Within seconds, the other kids on the court started to laugh. A barrage of negative comments, insults, and other forms of bullying followed. The boy had no choice but to walk off the court in embarrassment.
Shaylynn was absolutely disgusted by what she just witnessed. As someone who has been bullied in the past, she knew how it felt. That’s exactly why she decided to take action immediately.
Shaylynn walked back into the house and headed straight for her closet. She picked up one of her best pairs of shoes. As she headed back out the door, mom, Jacquelyn, asked her why she was walking around with a shoe box.
Shaylynn explained what happened and told mom that she planned to give her shoes to the 10-year-old boy. Jacquelyn was so proud of her daughter at that moment that she decided to record the special moment.
Take a look below to see the beautiful moment.
