Here is a beautiful story just in time for the holidays, courtesy of our own Jay Glazer.

Through his Touchdown Dreams program, Glazer helped arrange a visit for Ava Urrea, a 4-year-old who has a heart condition, to spend a day with the Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders went above and beyond, as the video above details, and offensive lineman Menelik Watson did one of the nicest things you'll hear about in the NFL this season.

Watson donated his game check to the Urrea family, which according to Pro Football Talk is about $36,944, since his salary for this season is $622,948.

Watch the video above to learn more about the story.
