Dwyane Wade gives house to South Florida family

The day after Christmas is usually a pretty big letdown. You've got a full year until the magical day returns, the big dinner may still be sitting heavy and you've got to get back to work.

It's a lot to handle.

That's why we start today with a feel-good story involving Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade helping a family who was displaced by a fire.

"Wade presented Dawn Smith with the ultimate Christmas gift on Wednesday -- the keys to a her new house, along with some furnishings, clothing and gifts to make sure her family has a joyous holiday, something that didn't seem likely just a few weeks ago.

His Wade's World foundation will make some payments on the home, while Smith and her family get back on their feet.

"That's what I try to teach my kids," said Wade, whose foundation has hosted several charity events this holiday season, mostly for needy children. "It's not about what you're going to receive -- it's what you can give to others from what you've received."
