Watch: Heartwarming Napa Kids Hug and Hoop

This little Napa girl busts some sweet moves with her light-up Hula hoop, but it's what she does afterward that will make you say "Awww."

A little Napa girl gives a touching example of spontaneous generosity in this video we were lucky enough to capture in downtown Napa's Veterans Memorial Park.

Our hats are off to her and all the children in Napa County who have shown their caring this year.

They passed up Halloween candy to raise cash for Sandy victims, collected donations for Napa Humane and helped countless other causes like Undies for Uganda.

And every day, they share hugs and small acts of kindness like the one in this video.

We'e lucky to live in a community with kids like these, don't you agree?

Patch hats are also doffed to hoop instructor Lilea Duran and the Napa Hoopers, who were celebrating World Hoop Day when we made the video Dec. 12, 2012.

Their free family Hoop Jam takes place Saturdays at noon in Veterans Park, and Duran also teaches hooping classes for all ages.

After you watch, please share your own stories of Napa Valley kids who have been generous and good this year. Tell us in the comments — Santa might be reading!

Thank you - we were so lucky to be rolling when this happened and as soon as we saw it, we went dashing home to edit. I say "we" not royally but because Paul helped me make the video. I had been looking for Noah!
