George H.W. Bush secretly sponsored young boy in the Philippines. Christie Ileto reports during Action News at 6 a.m. on December 22, 2018.

Even after his death, former president George H.W. Bush continues to warm hearts.

It was recently revealed the 41st president sponsored a seven-year-old boy in the Philippines named Timothy.

For ten years, Bush sent funds that went toward Timothy's education, activities and his meals.

Bush used a different name when he wrote letters to the boy to keep his identity a secret.

Timothy didn't find out who his sponsor was until he graduated from the program.
