Aside from playing the superhero Iron Man on the big screen, Robert Downey Jr. also does good deeds in real life. The actor, along with Albert Manero, a University of Central Florida student, founder of the volunteer group Limbitless Solutions, presented a heartwarming gift to seven-year-old Alex Pring, who was born with a partially developed arm.

Like all other boys his age, Alex has two favorite things: superheroes and riding his bike. However, his birth defect makes it hard for him to ride a bike.

Albert, a #CollectiveProject student who helps build and donate low-cost, 3D-printed bionic limbs to children all over the world, believed that Alex was the perfect candidate for the program. He decided to surprise him with a new bionic 3D-printed arm at no cost. But, he didn’t perform the task himself. He called out to a very special friend to help him—Iron Man himself.
