It’s a time where many children are looking forward to opening gifts on Christmas Day. One 11-year-old boy, however, had a different idea in mind.
Jaxson Turner of Plano, Texas, chose to forgo a wish list this year. Instead, he worked to bring Christmas gifts to homeless children.
Idea - Santa - Everything - Christmas - List
“The idea is that Santa would always give me everything on my Christmas list, and this year my Christmas wish is to be able to help others who are in need,” Jaxson told KTVT.
Jaxson and his mother, LaKeicee Turner, have raised over $5,000 in donations for gifts for homeless kids. Once the dozens of presents were ready, they were to be brought to the Samaritan Inn homeless center in McKinney for a party on Saturday, where homeless kids could get a Christmas present.
Need - Parents - Christmas - Jaxson
“They’re in need more than us, and their parents can’t afford for them to have a Christmas, and I don’t want them to suffer,” Jaxson said.
“The only thing I want is to be able to help and see the smiles on their faces, and that’s the best Christmas gift I can ever get.”

Famous Footwear also donated $500, which means that Jaxson was able to buy shoes for all the kids at the Samaritan Inn.
