Toddler’s Reaction To Homelessness Is Astounding!

Today Patrick was asking some questions and I (fully believing in being honest with my children) ended up telling him that some people don’t have food or homes. He asked some specific questions like “where do they sleep?” and “what do they eat?” After I explained to him, he sat and sobbed and told me he didn’t want to have Christmas if other people don’t even have houses. He didn’t calm down for over 30 minutes til his Grandma (Bobbi) promised to help him bring homeless people food. I could learn a lot from this 3 year old. If each of us had a heart this big, we wouldn’t have these problems. Some day this kid is going to change the world…

Little Patrick McClung is only 3-years-old but has the heart of a giant! Patrick, from Anchorage, Alaska, could not hold back his innocent tears when his mother, Destinee McClung, explained to him what homeless means. The 3-year-old’s heartbreaking reaction was caught on camera and shared on Facebook by his mother. He was so affected by this fact of life, that it prompted his mother to set up donation boxes around town for the collections of clothing and toiletries for homeless people.

His contribution hasn’t stopped there! Here he is seen volunteering at the Downtown Soup Kitchen, handing out desserts and being a part of the community.
