Most 6-year-olds have a huge list of things they want for their birthday.
But Armani Crews doesn’t think like that. Instead of asking her parents for something for her birthday, she wanted to do something else: she wanted to feed the homeless in her neighborhood of East Garfield Park in Chicago.
At first her parents thought she was joking, but Armani was serious. Then her mother Artesha said she would make sandwiches for the homeless, but that wasn’t enough for Armani — she wanted to give the homeless exactly what other guests at her party would have.
Her father Antoine then explained that if that happened, they’d be spending a lot more money on the food and wouldn’t have anything left for a birthday present.
Armani was fine with that. Together the family bought chicken, fish, corn, green beans, rolls, cake, cookies and more and then went around their neighborhood to give the food to homeless people. They fed around 125 people in total. Armani’s church even donated itms for care packages to give out, which included items like toothbrushes, deodorant, other hygiene items and snacks.
Armani was overjoyed to be helping others, and wants to return to feed more people in the future.
“It’s nice to be nice,” she told ABC News.
