Shaq, who is known for his random acts of kindness and for being deeply generous, has shared how he tries every day to do something kind for a stranger.

“I try to make every day a meaningful moment,” he said. “My favorite thing to do is when I’m in Best Buy, Walmart, if I see a kid, get them something that I see he’s looking at. Oh, like yesterday, I saw a couple of kids. I bought a couple bikes, a couple more scooters.”

While Shaq stands at 7 feet tall, his heart is definitely the biggest thing about him.
