Blue Jays outfielder spends his birthday giving gifts to strangers

Usually when a person celebrates their birthday, they spend the day receiving gifts and being showered with love from friends and family. Not Blue Jays outfielder Dalton Pompey, however.

The Toronto prospect had his 24th birthday over the weekend and he used the day to do something pretty special.


So today’s my 24th birthday and unlike any other birthday I decided to do something a little different. Instead of spending a ton of money having a huge birthday party at a restaurant or bar. I decided to take some of that money, buy some Tim cards and walk around Toronto handing them out to the less fortunate. I have a lot to be thankful for in my life and there’s no better way for me to thank God for blessing me than trying to make someone else’s day. There’s no better gift than the gift of kindness! Thanks to everyone who has wished me a happy birthday and helped me in some capacity throughout my life and shoutout to @itsmatthewromeo for the inspiration to do this! #giveyourday

Pompey bought Tim Horton’s gift cards and handed them out to strangers and the less fortunate around the city. Is that the most Canadian birthday of all-time, or is that the most Canadian birthday of all-time?

In the end, it was a pretty great gesture by Pompey, who is clearly in the holiday spirit.
