In just three years he organized countless social activities and donated nearly a thousand toys to hospitals in the L.A. Area. I think it's wonderful how people can be so kind in this world. For them to see that all really makes me feel good. Reporter: Here at new york-presbyterian Morgan Stanley children's hospital, it's the gift of art lighting up the hallways. You see all these paintings hung on the wall. They're brand-new submitted by tons of students. Just a little extra icing on that smile cake.
