(Newser) – A gesture by a group of high school students is making headlines, in a good way. Teens at Fresno High School chipped in and bought a new bike for a 9-year-old who had his stolen, reports CNN. In fact, Atticus Seng had his previous bike stolen as well just a month prior, which is what prompted the surprise gift. "I almost cried, I really did," says Atticus. Best part: His parents are going to match the $360 and donate it to a charity that provides bikes for the underprivileged in Fresno, reports KFSN-TV.

Wonderful teens. But I wish there were a way to assure that Atticus would not have this bike stolen as well.
