Sometimes, it just takes a little person and a little gesture to make a big positive difference.
That was the case with 4-year-old Colt Vinson. The Oklahoma child was on the way to dinner with his family in the car when they drove past a 16-hour police standoff. Vinson was immediately worried that the officers would be hungry while standing out in the cold. So he suggested to his mom that they should organize for chain restaurants to donate food and drinks to the hardworking cops before they finally got the suspect. The local Domino's and 7-11 were more than happy to help.

After the cops got the food and drinks, they gave Vinson the chance to meet the chaplains and captains. He even got a little badge!
"Your overwhelming generosity was appreciated, and made a stressful situation a little easier," the Oklahoma City Police Department wrote to him in a Facebook post.
And according to his mother, Jillian Vinson, it seems like the little boy has taken an important lesson away from the good deed.
"Colt learned that the small acts of kindness can go a long way," Jillian said. "We never thought that we would be noticed for what he did. It's such an honor for us and he is loving every bit of it!"
