SAN JOSE, CA (WMC) -

A little girl's generosity and genuine concern for a homeless man serves as an important lesson to thousands on Facebook. 

Ella, whose dad posted her video on social media, saw a homeless man sitting on a bench outside of a restaurant. 

"Can I just give him this?" she asked her dad in reference to her meal. 

With her dad's permission, outside she walked bravely by herself.

Watching closely while shooting video of her selfless act through the window, he said, "My girl right here, I love her to bits."

After briefly talking to the hungry man, Ella came back inside. Ella's face still showed of concern for the man as her dad told her how proud he was. 

"Good job, Ella. Ella, you're amazing. I think you just made his day. I think you just made his week," he told her.
