A woman is searching for a boy caught on security camera performing a touching act of kindness on Halloween.

Kim Manalo of Chula Vista, California left a bowl of candy near her front door on Halloween while she took her own kids out trick-or-treating on Halloween night.

According to KSWB, she and her family came home and found the bowl empty.

“We came home to an empty bowl and hoped there weren’t greedy kids that didn’t leave some behind for others,” wrote Manalo on Facebook.

She shared video of what she found when she checked her security footage. What one boy did melted her heart.

“Instead we found this clip of a wonderful soul who shared some candy from his own bag to keep the Halloween spirit going for other kids,” wrote Manalo. “If this is your kid, you should be very proud!”

The video was shared by the Love What Matters Facebook page, where it has been viewed more than 234,000 times.

Manalo said the act of kindness inspired her and her husband to pay it forward next year.

“My husband and I will bring extra candy to leave in empty candy bowls when we bring the kids trick or treating,” wrote Manalo.

Huge kudos and thanks are in order for this young man and his parents! He showed a simple gesture, but it really touched our hearts and we were able to teach our own children about selflessness. We left a bowl of candy and treats out with a note to take some while we were out trick-or-treating. We came home to an empty bowl and hoped there weren’t greedy kids that didn’t leave some behind for others. Instead we found this clip of a wonderful soul who shared some candy from his own bag to keep the halloween spirit going for other kids. If this is your kid, you should be very proud!
