Jeff Diggs of St. Louis, Missouri, really gets into the Christmas spirit. Sadly, the same can't be said about a vandal who recently stopped by Diggs' front yard to stab the giant, inflatable Frosty the Snowman there to celebrate the season. Thanks to a security camera, the Grinchy crime was caught on video.
Even holiday-haters can agree that this is bad form, but Diggs didn't take the assault lying down. He posted the footage online in the hopes of catching Frosty's killer, and, when that didn't work, used it to raise money for charity. On his GoFundMe page, titled "Frosty Still Loves You," he describes the suspects and their car—which allegedly bears a Trump-Pence bumper sticker, if you can believe it—and explains that he is taking donations for "Judge Joe Murphy’s Good Kids In Need," a "local St. Louis Christmas charity that has been helping to brighten the holidays of local people and families in the St. Louis region for the last 16 years." See? There's goodness in the world after all.
“This is a nice place to live and I want to try and keep it that way," Diggs told Fox News in an interview. "So if we all at least make everyone aware of what happens, more eyes on the street, more people paying attention to what’s going on, hopefully those kinds of senseless acts will decrease.”
Oh, and don't worry about Frosty. According to Diggs, he "received a total of 9 stitches from the stabbing. He is doing well and recovering from his injury. He insisted on going back to work immediately because he believes in the magic of the holiday season and hopes that all people will come together and learn to love and respect each other regardless of our differences!"
If that doesn't melt your heart a little, nothing will.
