    Work win

    I won a Play Station 2 last year from work. The guy I won it for didn't want it. So I didn't know what to do with it.

    A lady on one of my local Facebook groups asked for suggestions on what to get for her little boy for Christmas. She had limited funds. I contacted her and asked if she wanted a free Play Station 2, still in the box. She said Sure! So I made Christmas a little cheerier for a family

    I should point out at this point that I could not sell this. If I sold it I would be fired. So this wasn't as altruistic as it sounds

    You did a good thing - so yes, it was. Anytime you do a kindness, it starts a ripple.
    Be Happy Now.

    Yes it was, you made a little boy very happy.
    Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's things alone, and be kind to one another.

    It doesn't matter that you couldn't sell it. You reached out to the woman on Facebook and made her day better. Probably made your day better also.
