Caroline Macrory started a trend by leaving gifts on the doorstep of someone who needed them and running away. She called this the Doorstep Challenge and this act of kindness has really caught on. 

Even a few local businesses have joined in.

Macrory's goal is bringing people together to make life a little easier. She told Mashable, "Basically the concept of the ‘doorstep challenge’ is to reach out to those in our community who might be struggling at this time of year for one reason or another and spread a little Christmas cheer."

For someone who notoriously hates Christmas and has just travelled 30 hours from Sydney... Happy Christmas Gareth Neary

Jack Weaver suffers from Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome, a genetic disorder that delays development. According to his mom, Shannon, he's been having a particularly hard year. Since Christmas is his favorite time of year, she thought that a card or two might help cheer him up so she asked the internet and the internet delivered.

More than 50 cards have already come in, many of them with sweet messages to Jack like this one:
