A 13-year-old boy in America has won hearts all over the world for his beautiful gesture to people less fortunate than him.
Abraham Olagbegi was qualified for the Make A Wish Foundation after he received a bone marrow transplant to fix his rare blood disorder.
The Foundation's Make A Wish program grants kids the opportunity to do whatever they want (within reason, budget and reality) to bring them a bit of joy amid a serious illness.
Loads of kids his age might have wanted to meet Captain America or go to Disneyland with a VIP package.
However, this teen wanted to use his wish for something good.
Abraham's mum Miriam told CBS News: "I remember we were coming home from one of his doctor appointments and he said, 'Mom, I thought about it, and I really want to feed the homeless.
"I said, 'Are you sure Abraham? You could do a lot ... You sure you don't want a PlayStation?'"
Despite the allure of getting something epic for himself, he thought the money and opportunity would be better spent on other people.
The Foundation was more than happy to oblige Abraham in his wish and they set up a stall in Jackson, Mississippi to hand out free food to homeless people as well as supplies donated from local businesses.
On that day alone, they were able to help 80 people.
But Abraham's wish wasn't just a one-off. He told the Foundation he wanted this to happen every month for a whole year.
Every third Saturday of the month, Abraham gets to set up his stall and feed upwards of 80 people at a time.
The Make-a-Wish Foundation helps the 13-year-old connect with local suppliers to get the food and materials he needs to serve dozens of people.
Abraham told CBS News: "When the homeless people get the plate, some of them would come back and sing to us and thank us.
"And it just really feels good, it warms our hearts. And my parents always taught us that it's a blessing to be a blessing."
His mum added: "We're just very excited to be able to continue on this endeavour. It's just so rewarding.
"If I was out there on the streets, homeless, I would want somebody at some point to think of me and to do something special for me. So, that's what I try to instill in my kids and we just try to pay it forward, by doing what we were raised to do."
Once Abraham's epic wish runs out in August next year, he plans to keep it going by turning his idea into a non-profit organisation.
