Purdue football player buys toys for young girl's birthday

It’s always refreshing to see random acts of kindness, so kudos to Purdue’s Tario Fuller for what he did Thursday night.

The redshirt freshman bought birthday gifts for a young girl at Target after he overheard her talking about what she wanted for her special day.

The girl’s mom posted on Facebook about the awesome moment, which Purdue Athletics shared:

We couldn't be more proud of the type of young men and women in our athletics department. #BoilerUp
