An act of kindness at a Texas high school has gone viral and is touching the hearts of thousands. 
JR Gilbert, a sophomore at Somerset High School, has size 13 feet, but he’s been wearing size 10 shoes. 
Word spread that he had been wearing shoes that were too small, so his classmates decided to help him out. They raised money and surprised him at school last Friday with two brand new pairs of sneakers. 
“The three Bulldogs football players who started the drive are juniors,” Maury Vasquez with Somerset Independent School District (ISD) told FOX 5’s Katie Muse.
Somerset ISD shared a video on Facebook of JR receiving his gifts, and his reaction was priceless.

JR opened the presents and his classmates cheered as he held his shoes up in the air.
