A big-hearted little Beckham

London - Brooklyn Beckham has bought Thanksgiving presents for the homeless.
The 13-year-old school student - the eldest son of David and Victoria Beckham - decided he didn't want his parents to get him anything for the annual American holiday, which the family now celebrate as they live in Los Angeles, and instead has saved up his allowance to purchase gifts for those less fortunate than him.

A source said: "Brooklyn told his mum and dad that he didn't want to receive presents for Thanksgiving this year. He said instead he'd like to donate them to people who need them more.
"Brooklyn asked one of the family bodyguards to take him to a Rite Aid store in Los Angeles so he could buy some first-aid kits to put in the charity parcels."
Brooklyn also persuaded his younger brothers, Romeo, 10, and seven-year-old Cruz, to do the same and the trio are now looking forward to donating their gifts.
The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: "He even persuaded his brothers Romeo and Cruz to give up their presents and pocket money for the homeless this year. The lads are planning to give big, fun packages to the local shelter."
Brooklyn also has a little sister, 16-month-old Harper, who doesn't yet get an allowance. - Bang Showbiz
