Teens Give Clothes To Classmate Who Was Bullied His 'Entire Life'

Teens Give Clothes To Classmate Who Was Bullied His 'Entire Life'

Heartwarming footage has been released of two high school students donating clothes to one of their classmates who had been bullied his 'entire life'.

Two Good Samaritans from MLK College Preparatory High School, Memphis, gifted new clothes and shoes - along with some of their own - to freshman Michael Todd who had been picked on for weeks after wearing the same outfit every day.

Speaking to Fox 13, Michael said he was 'shocked' by the entire thing and thanked the two football players, Kristopher Graham and Antwan Garrett, for reaching out to him.

Together the pair emptied out bags filled with shirts, shorts, shoes and more, much to Michael's surprise.

He said: "It was awesome, the best day of my entire life basically. I was very happy. I was shocked completely. You guys are awesome."

Kristopher told reporters that he felt the need to apologise to Michael after laughing at him during class.

He said: "We was in the same third period. I said, 'I apologise for laughing at you and I wanna give something to you to make it up.'

"When I saw people laugh at him and bully him, I felt like I needed to do something."

Antwan added: "It was a weak moment for me, I was crying."

According to reports, the viral video has inspired students in other states to do the same.

But it's not just teens who are reaching out to their classmates in their hour of need.

When little eight-year-old Christian Moore saw Connor Crites alone, crying in the playground, he rushed over to make sure he was OK, holding his hand before heading off to class together.

What Christian didn't know at the time, however, was that his new pal had autism. Overwhelmed with everything that was going on at Minneha Elementary School in Kansas, he struggled to take it all in.

Connor says his new buddy's kindness helped him overcome his first-day nerves and the pair of LADs are now well on their way to being best friends forever.

He said: "He was kind to me. I was in the first day of school and I started crying then he helped me and I was happy. He found me and held my hand and I got happy tears."
