A guy in the D.C. area named Kent Wilson is a huge Washington Nationals fan, along with his father Richard. But last May, Richard was diagnosed with liver cancer, and told he only had months to live. (Kent looks like he's in his 30s.)
As a way of staying optimistic, he and Kent bought season tickets this year, hoping Richard would be around to use them. And they DID go on opening day. But after that, Richard's health started to go, and he could only watch on TV.
And sadly, Richard passed away last month at age 67. But what Kent did next is awesome: As a tribute to his dad's generosity, he gave the rest of the tickets away.
In fact, he got such a huge and positive response to his story on Craigslist, he used his reward points at Nationals Park to get 20 MORE tickets, and gave THOSE away too.
Then a woman emailed Kent about a silent auction to raise money for the family of her brother, who'd passed away. So Kent bought MORE tickets, plus a parking pass, and sent them to her.
He says it started as a simple idea, but almost became like therapy for him. Quote, "I was trying to be generous, but I was also trying to get rid of the tickets. But it was a lot bigger [and] a lot more helpful than I thought it would be."
