Last week, when the little boy’s grandmother desired to gift him a $300 Xbox One X as a Christmas gift, instead of accepting the gift, the young kid decided to spend the same amount of money on blankets for the local needy.

As the Christmas season is here, a nine-year-old Mikah Frye, from Ashland decided to do something good for the underprivileged countrymen. Last week, when the little boy’s grandmother desired to gift him a $300 Xbox One X as a Christmas gift, instead of accepting the gift, the young kid decided to spend the same amount of money on blankets for the local needy.

This action of young Mikah Frye not only caught the attention of those who received the donated blankets but also the eye of a billion dollar company Microsoft, maker of the mentioned Xbox consoles.

Microsoft planned a big surprise at Beachwood Place on Saturday to reward the kid for his actions. The company decided to offer him a free Xbox One X. Microsoft gifted not just a special Minecraft-themed edition of the Xbox One X, but also miscellaneous games and accessories which the boy could use with the console.

After receiving all the items, Mikah began to cry, along with his other family members on their good prosperity and the difficulties they have overcome.
