This 8-Year-Old Refused To Eat Her Fancy Dinner, The Unexpected Reason Why Left The Whole Restaraunt In Tears

An adorable daddy-daughter date took an unusual turn when the little girl refused to eat her fancy dinner. And the beautiful reason why this 8-year-old demanded to skip dinner is sure to pull on your heartstrings. I promise, you don’t want to miss this.

Ella Scott and her daddy were served their food, but everything suddenly changed the moment she looked out the window. Little Ella just couldn’t help but notice a homeless man sitting on a bench all alone outside of the Monterey, California restaurant.

Ella’s father, Eddie, asked if she thought the man had a place to live, Ella replied no. And without hesitation, little Ella’s face lit up as she asked one simple, beautiful question:

“Daddy, can I give him my dinner?”


Promptly after being given permission and without knowledge of whether or not her daddy would buy another meal, Ella jumped to her feet, beyond thrilled to share her scrumptious meal.


The proud father captured the powerful moment on film– and it’s almost too beautiful for words.

Ella’s father shared the video to Facebook and wrote, “My baby girl Ella learned an important lesson today – Help those less fortunate than you!! So proud of my girl!”

Watch the precious moment in the video below:

In a world consumed with selfishness and greed, this precious little girl’s kind gesture reminds us all that it’s truly better to give than receive. Thank you, Ella, for reminding the world of what truly matters. May we all learn from this wise little girl’s powerful example of generosity. What the world needs now is love, please share if you agree.
