We all know Karl Towns is one of the sweetest people on the planet. There’s never a shortage of stories about how he is constantly helping other people and encouraging those who need it. A couple of days ago, published an article about KAT’s dedication to those with autism. On Face to Face, Towns was shown volunteering at the REED Academy, a New Jersey program for children with autism, after being deeply moved by the shootings in Newtown. Turns out he’s been spending time with the kids for a while.

Before heading off to Lexington this time last year, KAT was volunteering with the organization Parents of Autistic Children. “It comes from within,” Karl’s mom told Bleacher Report earlier in the year. “I don’t know how else to explain it. Karl will never think he’s bigger and better than anyone. He follows his heart and does what’s right because it makes him feel good inside.”

Take a few minutes to watch the video above. I promise, you won’t regret it.
