New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas is one of the good guys around the football world.

The record-breaking pass catcher proved this once again Monday, one day after setting the mark for most receptions in single-season NFL history.

Instead of celebrating his accomplishment during the Saints’ off day, Thomas decided to hit up a local children’s hospital in Louisiana and spread some cheer.

Talk about doing it right. The smiles on these children’s faces in the lead up to Wednesday’s holiday are everything.

It’s times like these that reminds us these players are much more than stats and highlight-reel plays.

One of the most-dominant receivers in league history through the first four seasons of his career, Thomas took this to a whole new level on Monday.

Just tremendous stuff.
