This week’s Halloween-themed Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from San Bruno, CA, where 6 year old Nico Castro bought costumes and candy for his fellow hospital patients so that they could celebrate Halloween. Nico is battling brain cancer, but his doctor told him he could go out trick or treating on Halloween. Nico’s mom said:
“Even though he’s worse off then some of these other kids in the hospital, he’s worried about them and, oh, they can’t go trick or treating and oh they can’t get candy.”
Nico’s family even started a costume drive in their community, and they have received over 60 donated costumes for the children in the hospital.
We think this is an incredible act of kid-ness and are inspired by Nico’s desire to bring joy to his friends during his favorite holiday.
