It began as a single act of kindness but the generosity of a nine-year-old Texas girl quickly inspired others and now the project she started is growing bigger than she could have imagined.


Aisley Bradford is not your typical nine year old. After receiving about $60 as Christmas money, Aisley decided she didn't want to spend it on herself.

Instead, Aisley wanted to buy sleeping bags for the homeless.



"When I walked outside, I felt how cold it was, and I thought of those people that didn't have home or shelter," Aisley told Fox 4 News.

Inspired by Aisley's generosity, several others soon joined in matching her $60.

Money in hand, Aisley headed to Academy Sports + Outdoors to pick up the sleeping bags. When the store employees heard what Aisley was doing, they wanted to help, so they gave Aisley a 20% discount.

With the extra money and the discount, Aisley was able to get a whole lot of sleeping bags.

With a car full of sleeping bags, Aisley then headed to downtown Dallas to hand them out.


"She was excited, she did most of the work with her brother and sisters," Aisley's mother, Christina Bradford told Fox 4. "I think they're all giving kids. And so it just came natural."

Now Aisley's giving nature seems to be inspiring even more people.





So far, Aisley says she's already handed out 30 sleeping bags to the homeless in Dallas, but she doesn't plan on stopping there.

After the success of her first effort, Aisley decided to set up Cared N Covered, a project dedicated to continuing what she started.

Along with a Twitter account, Aisley started a GoFundMe page to keep raising money to buy more sleeping bags.

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
