We've always had respect for Rico Rodriguez, the sweet-talking, coffee-chugging 13-year-old who plays Manny on Modern Family. In fact, he's one of the main reasons we tune in (well, after Sophia Vergara).

But our props for Rico just reached a new level. In light of the upcoming holiday season, the young actor showed his support for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital by hitting the toy department in a Los Angeles Kmart, and taking two young patients on a $500 shopping spree.

Rico shared the Christmas love with children who are battling cancer and other deadly diseases for the hopsital's Thanks and Giving campaign, and you can show your support too. Go to stjude.org, and make like Manny!
