17-year-old high school senior Alex Huot decided to give back for the holidays. When Huot realized the latest Star Wars saga was coming out a week before Christmas, he came up with the idea to collect gifts at a screening to give to kids in need, KMSP reports.

While Huot, a huge fan Star Wars fan, can't wait to see the new movie he's also using his love of the franchise for good. The senior in high school rented out a movie theater and created a Facebook event to invite his friends, family, and classmates to a private screening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But Huot isn't going to charge his friends for tickets, instead he's asking then to bring toys to donate to children in need.

"Around the holidays, it's always a good feeling to give something," Huot told KMSP. "It's good to give to people -- all the families who aren't as fortunate as we are."
