Earlier this month we heard about a 12-year-old Michigan boy that was fed up with the potholes in his neighborhood so he took it upon himself to fill em' up.

According to WXYZ, the boy started filling potholes using a shovel and dirt from his backyard to even out the road. He simply didn't want people messing up their cars as his mom did.

Nearly a month later the boy is being rewarded for his awesomeness. The mayor, neighbors and strangers from out of state (Canada & Florida) hooked him up with gift cards and presents including yard tools and a lawnmower.

It's not like this kid filled only a couple of potholes in his neighborhood, no, he filled around 30. It would be awesome to see more kids take initiative like this. Way to go little dude!
