RICHMOND, Va. – Nikki-Dee Ray wanted to surprise a youngster who works hard and gives all his money back to his family.

The Next Move Program provides work and educational experiences to young adults with disabilities as they transition out of high school into the world of work.

Nikki-Dee Ray heard about a student with Next Move who is a talented graphic designed, but doesn’t have a computer of his own.

He was able to get work through the program, but gives his money to his family.

So, Nikki-Dee Ray, for her turn during the CBS 6 Month of Giving, awarded him with a gift card so he can pick out a computer to keep developing his skill.

“We want you to go get a computer,” Nikki-Dee Ray said. “Continue to go after your dream, because we all believe you have an amazing talent.”

Every day through December, a CBS 6 team member will surprise someone in the community with a random act of kindness.

The CBS 6 Month of Giving is possible due to a partnership with Union Bank and Trust.
