Devin Hinkston, 30, was driving through the town of Alexandra, Louisiana, when he spotted a young boy playing basketball in his driveway. When he got closer, he realized the boy was using a trash can as a basketball hoop.
"I always do [random acts of kindness]," Hinkston told GMA. "I'll see kids in the corner store and I'll buy all of them something to snack on. I'll see a homeless person and buy them a bomber jacket or some food. I just never post about it on social media because that's not the reason I'm doing it. I do it from the heart."
So, Hinkston returned to the house with a basketball hoop.
"This young man knocked on my door and said 'Ma'am I seen your little boy shooting the ball in the trash can earlier and I went and bought him a basketball goal'," Patricia Williams wrote in a Facebook post.
"This man was a complete stranger," Williams said. "I just started crying because it was an angel in disguise."
Hinkston said he got emotional too.
"Jeremiah was in the background jumping for joy and she was jumping and I was dropping tears," Hinkston said. "It was special."
