Most receive on their birthday, but one Blue Jays outfielder decided to give.

Dalton Pompey turned 24 on Sunday, and instead of having a big birthday bash he celebrated by walking around Toronto and handing out Tim Horton’s gift cards to the needy.

“There's no better gift than the gift of kindness!” Pompey wrote in an Instagram post..

He said his inspiration came from Toronto DJ Matthew Romeo in his post.
