A seven-year-old Texas boy’s incredible act of kindness after a crime of hate has been rewarded with a surprise gift from someone who appreciated his thoughtfulness.

Jack Swanson was upset after seeing that his local mosque had been covered in feces and ripped pages of the Koran following the Paris terror attacks last Friday and donated the entire contents of his piggy bank to the Islamic Center of Pflugerville.

The little boy was rewarded when news of his $20 gift went viral and Muslim human rights lawyer Arsalan Iftikhar gave him the iPad that he had been hoping to buy with his savings.


‘Because of your amazing generosity & kind heart please enjoy this Apple iPad with our sincere thanks :-). Love The American Muslim Community,’ a note with the package said.

Iftikhar told that he organized the gift because ‘‘When I first saw the story about Jack donating $20 from his own piggy bank to help the vandalized mosque, it literally brought tears to my eyes’.
