A viral video showing security camera footage taken in Chula Vista on Halloween night may help restore your faith in the honor system.
Kim Manalo's family joined the throngs of trick-or-treaters racing door-to-door in their neighborhood. Manalo wanted to keep the spirit of Halloween alive at her home while they were out, so, she left a bowl filled with candy outside their door with a note asking people to help themselves. Her hope was that people would leave a treat for the next candy-seeker.
"We came home to an empty bowl and hoped there weren't greedy kids that didn't leave some behind for others," Manalo wrote on her post.
She studied security footage to see if perhaps someone grabbed more than their share of goodies. What Manalo found on her security camera video was a surprise that almost made her cry.
"Instead we found this clip of a wonderful soul who shared some candy from his own bag to keep the halloween spirit going for other kids," Manalo wrote.
