In Oslo, Norway, They Give the Shirts off Their Backs

03 Mar

When an 11-year-old boy sat at a bus stop without a jacket in Oslo, Norway, hidden cameras captured a series of very special moments.
 
The experiment was filmed by the Norwegian branch of the SOS Children's Villages International charity as part of a campaign to provide warm clothing for displaced children in Syria, according to The Nordic Page.
 
In the video, the majority of bystanders offer coats, scarves or gloves to the boy.

"People should care as much about children in Syria as they care about this boy," Synne Ronning, the information head of SOS Children's Villages Norway, told The Local. She also noted that the child was a volunteer who was never in any danger during the filming.
