Paul Breault has been carrying mail in Pittsfield, MA for about three years now. A young kid on his route has been patiently waiting for a gift to arrive in his mailbox but hasn't yet.

Breault, because that's the type of guy he is, took matters into his own hands.

The following is from his social media page

So this little kid keeps waiting for me everyday on my route for the mail with his mom looking over him... today I finally said to the mom, " What's he waiting for?"

She said his aunt was suppose to send him at RC car for his birthday...But she forgot or is not..

I told her, " make sure he's there tomorrow...I'll make it happen... think he will like it? 😁😁
