This picture is a prime example of what I love about this time of year, the spirit of giving is alive and well, folks.
NYPD officer Larry DePrimo, 25, came to the aid of a barefoot homeless man in the frigid streets of Manhattan this month by buying him a $75 pair of winter boots, thermal socks included. A tourist snapped the heartwarming picture above, posted it online and it has since gone viral.
By the way, DePrimo wasn't even aware the photo had been taken until a friend alerted him of his new celebrity status during dinner that night.
"I didn't think anything of it," he said of his random act of kindness, but we certainly do. I think I speak on behalf of most people when I say, thank you officer, DePrimo.
