"He wants to know if y'all can share this and give it to A-Breg," Madden said.

Raider has autism and is shy, according to his brother, which is why he did the talking on the video.

Their mother, Felicia Evans, said this is the second year the boys have made the special request. As of Friday morning, the video had more than 1,000 views and had been shared 75 times.
