Rob Cardwell spreads holiday cheer to those in the Christmas spirit

RICHMOND, Va. -- The Christmas spirit is in the air and CBS 6 anchor Rob Cardwell wanted to spread a little holiday cheer.

While at the Dominion Energy Christmas Parade this past Saturday, Cardwell surprised some unsuspecting spectators in the latest instalment of the CBS 6 Month of Giving.

“You guys are out here, you’re in such Christmas spirit and you have so many kids to buy presents for, I wanted to surprise you with a gift card from CBS 6,” Cardwell said to a family of five.

Cardwell said he helped multiple people who were showing the Christmas spirit, dressed in holiday attire, or arrived very early to see the parade.

“What does Christmas time mean to you?” Cardwell asked one man.

“Christmas time is family and the Christmas parade right here in Richmond,” he said.

Every day through December, a CBS 6 team member will surprise someone in the community with a random act of kindness.

The CBS 6 Month of Giving is possible due to a partnership with Union Bank and Trust.
