Nanny Sandra Schneider and her grandchildren Hayden Cook

“Christmas is all about sharing and joy”

This Christmas, a boy is giving one of his bikes away to someone who doesn’t have one.

This Christmas, a boy is giving away one of his bikes to someone who doesn’t have one.

Hayden Cook, 3, was given two bikes last Christmas, one from his mommy and daddy and one from his nanny, Sandra Schneider.

Schneider says the bike was never used so she thought it would be a good idea to give it away this Christmas to someone who would use it, so she asked Hayden and his brothers, Chase, 8, and Chelle, 5, what they thought.

They agreed to give the bike away, so Schneider called Myrna Arnold, Executive Director at Houston Community Services.

It’s going to be given to a three year old boy with a single mom, said Arnold.

“They’d never get a bike any other way,” she added. “Never.”

“We feel good about it,” said Chase.

Christmas is all about sharing and joy, he added.
