“How about if I donate it back?” asked one selfless man. “To someone so that it goes to a charity for toys and food?”

One dad was excited to spend the money on his children.

“I’m going to make sure the kids have a Christmas that they weren’t going to get before,” he told Santa.

Commenters were touched by Zachery Dereniowski’s holiday spirit and the actor’s excellent portrayal of Santa Claus!

“This was so lovely it made me cry,” said one user. “Coming from Santa was extra special.”
