A Boy Who Saved 17 Lives Gets a Big Surprise

177214 ratings | 10253523 views
In partnership with the film Wonder, SoulPancake surprises 13-year-old hero, Virgil Smith, who trudged into the Hurricane Harvey flood waters with an air mattress to transport his stranded neighbors to safety. We’d say that deserves a Standing Ovation! As a thank you to Virgil for choosing kindness, he was awarded an Auggie Award! This was a scholarship to help with school, and a donation to the Harvey relief efforts made in his name. #ChooseKind Special thanks to Lionsgate, Participant Media, and Walden Films. See "Wonder" in theaters November 17. We love to connect with YOU, no matter what language you speak.

Wow, in times like these with the heartless things ppl do to each other. To see this story, of a kid doing something that changed so many lives n lives to come forever. I can’t believe with all the celebrities and famous people, rich people of the world, the millionaires, Ellen show, Oprah n others haven’t acknowledged this n giving this kid anything. I’m not categorizing white or black and anything over color, but this kid saved lives and will make lives of the ppl he saved life change. I pray the media get your story, n God continue to bless you cause your a living example of a Angel!!

Oh and p.s. who in the hell had the hull to dislike this video? In my opinion the ones who disliked it are what’s wrong in our world today..you’d rather dislike a video that shows that some brave young man has a moral compass and a heart and compassion for his fellow human beings...with all the strife and murdering in some of our large cities of young people one would think this video would have went completely viral with 2 million views and 2 million likes with 0 dislikes...but you have hate in your heart and that’s the truth....
Mr. D. (1 day ago)
I’d say Virgil is a hero...with all the crap in today’s world with young kids killing other young kids up comes a hero...it’s good to know that there are still young men today that has morals, courage and his modesty is second to none...I’d love to see the city there reward him and I know they gave him a scholarship which is AWESOME in itself but I’d like to see him get a plague in honor of what this young man did...his selflessness gives us hope for the future generations being brought up in this cruel world....
