A group of teenagers who came across an empty candy bucket decided to refill it with their own candy in order to ensure little kids could have some too.
Going viral on social media, the act of holiday generosity was filmed from the house owner’s Ring camera and captured the irony of the three young women, dressed as bald businessmen, donating their own candy and inviting other trick-or-treaters to follow suit.
Homeowner Jennifer Wyckoff of Redmond, central Oregon, was excited to watch the Ring camera footage back with her daughter Layla Glover, so as to see all the different costumes that paid them a visit. Their candy bucket had a note pinned to it: “Sorry we missed you, be kind and only take a few pieces.”
What they found was rather shocking, rather than coming up and taking candy, kids were coming up and replenishing Wyckoff’s pumpkin which was at that point empty.
“On our camera, I saw them come up to the house, there was no candy there. They said ‘Oh, let’s donate some to the bowl.’ There was some other kids walking up and they told them ‘Hey, come give some candy to this bowl, there’s none left,’” Glover told the Central Oregon Daily.
The newspaper then got in contact with some of the kids, and they had some inspiring insight into their generous trick.
“We see the teenagers running around especially later at night taking the candy, and then all of the little kids who still want more candy when there’s none left in the bowl, it just makes you want to give more,” said Samantha Sale, one of the girls who donated some of her candy.
Another said that three pieces of candy from her already-bulging stash aren’t going to make much difference to her, but for a child arriving at the empty candy bucket who might really have their spirits dropped, the candy would make a big difference.
After being shared on Facebook, someone commented that they “didn’t want to brag,” but their daughter was the one who started it all, to which another replied that “those teens were raised right! Great job! You should be extremely proud of your actions last night!!”
Still, another, proving that good deeds don’t go unrewarded, said “Reach out to me!! I will gladly give them some whole candy bars from my leftovers!!”
