School bus driver saves his money to buy a Christmas gift for every kid on his route

Curtis Jenkins is a beloved part of the school community.

A school bus driver in Dallas, Texas became a sort of Santa this year.

The total was 70 gifts. The students found out about the gifts when they were picked up at school on Dec. 21.

The school posted photos of the gifts and Curtis to its Facebook page where it's been shared almost 9,000 times.

Jenkins told "Good Morning America," he was motivated to do this for the kids because he wanted to "magnify loving and caring."

"He asked the kids what they wanted for Christmas and kept a list," Jennifer Wilcox, the school's PTA president, said. "I believe his motivation was to bless the kids and to put smiles on their faces."

Wilcox said Jenkins' story is an example of the generosity that's found at the school. "We have a diverse student population and our staff and parents work hard to create a kind and inclusive environment," she told "GMA."

One of the kids even asked Jenkins if he was Santa.

"Kids these days need to see positivity," Jenkins said.

Jenkins added he hopes to do more good deeds in the future and is starting a non-profit to continue his acts of kindness. It's called Magnify, Caring and Change Foundation. Anyone who wants to connect for more information can find him on Instagram @curtisjenkins2018.

"If you show a lot of kids a lot of love they will do the same," Jenkins said.
