8-Year-Old Boy Saves Christmas For Kids In Puerto Rico

An 8-year-old boy in New Jersey has collected more than 1,000 toys for children of Puerto Rico.

Jayden Perez told his mother Ana Rosado that he wanted to donate his Christmas gifts this year to the children affected by hurricanes but Rosado suggested he take it a step further: have a toy drive.

To spread the word, Rosado posted a video of Jayden asking for donations on Facebook.

So far, the drive has collected more than 1,000 toys — and there are more toys coming. Rosado said a man had even reached out to her from Pennsylvania, saying he had a trailer of toys that had been donated from his community.

“I’m so overwhelmed,” Rosado told ABC News. “I’m so proud of my son. … I didn’t expect so many toys.”
