While the Toronto Blue Jays ownership group and management team mull over opening the bank to bring back Jose Bautista, one outfielder has embraced holiday spirit with the gift of giving.
Mississauga native Dalton Pompey celebrated his 24th birthday on Sunday by hitting the streets of Toronto to hand out Tim Hortons gift cards to the less fortunate.
Via Pompey’s Instagram account:
So today’s my 24th birthday and unlike any other birthday I decided to do something a little different. Instead of spending a ton of money having a huge birthday party at a restaurant or bar. I decided to take some of that money, buy some Tim cards and walk around Toronto handing them out to the less fortunate. I have a lot to be thankful for in my life and there’s no better way for me to thank God for blessing me than trying to make someone else’s day. There’s no better gift than the gift of kindness! Thanks to everyone who has wished me a happy birthday and helped me in some capacity throughout my life and shoutout to @itsmatthewromeo for the inspiration to do this! #giveyourday
Maybe the Blue Jays’ brass will take note and get into the spirit of giving and address some needs in the outfield and bullpen.
