In a later tweet, he added:

“There’s no better time than the holidays to give back to your community. Yesterday I got to do just that at @ChildrensHealth. As we celebrate the season and look forward to 2019, let’s recommit to doing our part to build a world that is a little more generous, tolerant, and kind.”

 

Many social media users praised Obama for his act of kindness, with one writing: “Agree with his policies or not – but never say that the man doesn’t care. A great role model for all of us.
