In an orphanage, the children have very little surprises and gifts. Every year at Christmas time in one such place, each child gets a fresh, round orange as a treat. The orange is very special, and is something the children look forward to each year.
One year, one of the boys saw an old man outside in ragged clothes wandering by as though he had no real place to be. The little boy’s heart fills with love and he decides to give the man his orange. After all, he knows he will have a meal tomorrow, and is not sure when was the last time the man had something good to eat.
The next morning the boy wakes up to an unusual orange: it was an orange alright, but made of different orange slices! All of the other boys had saved 1 slice of their own orange to give to the boy who gave away his orange. .
