After hearing of the boy's death, Shawn took it upon himself to pay for the majority of his funeral costs.

Shawn Mendes proved once again how much of a true gentleman he is after showing this incredibly generous act of kindness.

Young fan Deijomi Makela-Stewart sadly passed away on the 16th August 2018 in Pickering, Ontario, the same town Shawn Mendes was raised as a child. His family decided to set up a fundraising page with a goal of $10k to pay for the cost of his funeral.

Upon learning of Deijomi's fundraising page death, Shawn decided to pay for HALF of the costs without even being asked. Wow.

The funding page reads, "On August 16 2018 we lost our beloved son Deijomi. Please support our efforts in providing Deijomi the service he deserves and we thank you for your support during this challenging time."

The goal of $10K has already been surpassed thanks to the generosity of over 140 people.

Fans responded to Shawn's act of kindness on Twitter, one branding him an 'angel' and that 'we don't deserve him'. To be honest, we have to agree!
