A teenager's selfless act is going viral.
14-year-old Laron Turnstill was volunteering with a religious group that was feeding the homeless. He noticed a man with torn up shoes, and without hesitating, handed over his pair of Air Jordans.
"At first he was like 'No, I can't take these because they are too expensive,'and I told him 'You know, take it,'" said Turnstill. "I'm just trying to do right. I'm just trying to change the world."
In recognition of his good deed, a donor gave Turnstill a new pair of Air Jordan shoes.
