Caring Friend Uses Drone to Send Birthday Gifts


Lionel Chambers birthday came and went during lockdown and he wasn’t able to celebrate with a traditional party.  So, he decided to put a message out on social media asking which of his friends had suffered a similar fate.  When the 24-year-old realized that seven other friends had the same experience, he decided to come up with a plan.

This young man was tired of Zoom birthdays chats and drive-by parades that have become quite commonplace during COVID, so he decided to do something a little different.

Using string, Lionel attached 25 gift cards to his drone, along with a camera to film his friend’s reactions. He then flew his drone to each person individually, presenting them with their GC – all the while maintaining a physical distance. 

He called each friend before their gift arrived, telling them to go outside.
