News of Mikah’s generosity reached local news channel Fox8 Cleveland, and then the attention of Microsoft, who decided such generosity at an early age should not go unrewarded and arranged for Mikah to pick up a brand-new Xbox One from the local Microsoft Store.
“When they called and told me I was just instantly crying on the phone and I couldn’t believe it,” said Mikah’s grandmother Terry Brant recalling when she learned about the surprise. “What’s harder was not telling him.”
“He knew what it was like to not have a blanket at night and have to give it back,” said a tearful Brant. “So the first thing he wanted to do is give a blanket that they could keep.”
At the store employees led him to the back, where he was presented with 2 large bags of gifts, including an Xbox One.
“It’s just amazing, it’s a blessing, Mikah is a blessing to our family and we thank you very much,” said Brant.
