The world has never been more appalling with fatal wars and repulsive politics plaguing its every corner. Because of this, we sometimes lose hope that humanity will be saved from its own destructive nature.
But amidst all these negativity are little rays of sunshine that prove it’s worth keeping faith in humanity. One of these rare rays of sunshine is eight-year-old Ella who decided to show her love for her fellowmen in the simplest but most awe-inspiring way possible.
The story behind Ella’s sweet smile will leave you in awe.
Unlike other children her age, Ella’s sincere smile wasn’t because she got to go to Disneyland or because she finally received the Barbie doll she’s always dreamed of. Instead, this little girl was smiling because of the warmth she felt after doing a good deed for a homeless man.
Earlier on September, Ella’s dad posted a footage online showing how his little girl made him proud.
After ordering steak and potatoes at the restaurant Lallapalooza in Monterey, California, Ella looked outside the restaurant and saw a homeless man sitting on a bench. Without hesitation, she asked her father: “Can I just give him some?”
Completely in awe, her dad approved of her idea and she brought the entire plate outside and gave it to the homeless man. Clearly proud of her cat-eared daughter, Eddie caught the entire thing on record. Check it out.

Like any parent, Eddie was so proud that her little Ella found it in her heart to share what she has to those who have little. At the end of the video, Scott lauded her daughter who was clearly abashed by the compliment.
“Ella, you’re amazing. I think you just made his day. I think you just made his week. How does that make you feel?” Eddie asks her.
She answered with her sweetest smile ever.
“I like it.”
