Free Presents ... On One Condition

Dec 16, 2015 By Archit Tripathi

Christmas is probably my favorite time of year, but these days it can be easy to get a bit lost in it all. Between thinking of all the yummy holiday treats and trying to get your wish list just right, you may lose sight of the fact that the real point of the season is not about what you can enjoy for yourself, but rather how you can give and spread kindness to others. 

In this video, a machine marked "Free Presents" is set up in a crowded area. A ringing phone attracts the attention of people walking by, who are given a free present when they answer the phone. There is one important catch, however - the people answering the phone have to give the free gift to a random stranger. All of this helps drive home the point that this season is about giving and doing something nice for someone other than yourself. Going by the reactions of the people in the video, I think it's safe to say that even though they gave up their free presents, the feeling of warmth and generosity they received more than made up for it.
