Teens Raise $400 To Help Replace 9-Year-Old's Bike

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," older teens show a nine-year-old kindness and help him buy a new bike. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Atticus Seng from Fresno, California,  recently had his bike stolen not once, but twice. Two bikes gone in the space of a month.

He locked them up both times, did everything right and still, off they went.

These events inspired students at Fresno High School to go classroom to classroom raising money, nearly $400, so the child could buy a new bike.

Atticus says, “Well, I was like,I was like very happy at first.  I almost cried, I really did.  And I was like, "Oh my god! My bike's here" and I just, I just didn't know what to do because I, I, was very excited.”

And the good stuff doesn't end there.  Atticus and his family have decided to pay it forward.

They are matching the price of the bike and giving it to a charity that helps buy bikes and locks for those less fortunate.

    Stories like this are becoming common, and how awesome is that? In a time when the adults can't figure out to be decent to each other, the kids are showing them. I have a lot of hope for the future.
