CEBU CITY, Philippines—A kid’s act of kindness in an arcade in General Santos City is melting hearts online.

Matthieus Jan Laurent Java, who is three years old, showed how amazing he was raised by the people around him through the simple act of sharing a ball with a kid in an arcade.

It was Sunday, October 1, when Matthiesu, together with his family, went to a mall to spend some quality time together.

Antonnette Camay, the aunt of Matthieus, took to her TikTok account to share the video of the moment Matthieus showed his kindness to another kid in the arcade.

“Naga watch lang siya [other kid] play ta’s timing last na niya na bola to. Imbis ilabay na niya nakita niya ang bata ga tanaw ddto nalng niya gihatag,” said Camay.

(The other kid was watching and then it was his last ball. Instead of throwing the last ball, he saw the kid and decided to just give the last throw to the other kid.)

The video has already 3 million views on TikTok.
