You Can Only Pick One.

Imagine getting everything you thought you ever wanted. Would you ever turn it down?

A group of underprivileged children from the Atlanta Boys and Girls Clubs were faced with a tough decision this Christmas when UPtv gave them whatever they wanted as a gift, from toys to computers to an Xbox. But then, they were given a choice that would teach them the true meaning of the holidays.

UPtv is dedicated to producing uplifting videos that encourages committing acts of kindness to friends and strangers in order to make the world a brighter place.

Recently, for the holiday season, they took a group of children from the Atlanta Boys and Girls Clubs and decided to make their Christmas one to remember.

The video cites that 83% of the children involved in the Clubs come from low-income families that cannot afford simple luxuries in life, such as a Christmas tree.

In the spirit of good will, UPtv found out what some of the kids wanted for Christmas, and then gave them their ideal gift, with just one catch: the kids could either choose their dream present, or they could instead choose a gift for their parents and families.
