Video: 100-Year Old Veteran Surprised with Trip to Disneyland by a Stranger

After coordinating a special surprise with the elderly gentleman’s caregiver, TikTok user Isaiah Garza (@isaiahgarza) took the anonymous 100-year old veteran to Disneyland. The elderly man was moved by Garza’s kindness and shared that this trip was one of the best experiences of his life, sharing in the video: “This is one of the best days of my life. I feel like I might be dreaming or something. I thought my life was over. I will remember this day for a long time. You don’t know how much I appreciate this… you really don’t know.” Check out the viral video below:

Garza has grown his following on TikTok and thanks to sponsorships and brand collaborations has been able to bless strangers with kind gestures and help for those who find themselves homeless like Garza once was. In Gaza’s own words: “I think it was the pain I went through every day when I would sleep on concrete, shower in public restrooms for years. I just told myself I was going to use this energy and harness it for good someday. I never knew how I was going to be able to make money someday to help people, but I always told myself that energy I would harness it for good and it ended up working.”
