Grab a tissue...or two...or the whole box maybe. Sniffle.

This video making the rounds of Robert Downey Jr. giving a little boy a prosthetic arm will truly bring all the feels. Every last one of them. In the clip, Robert gives a 7-year-old boy named Alex, who was born with a partial limb, an amazing prosthetic Iron Man arm.

Robert shared the video of the special moment on his Facebook page, explaining:

"Had the absolute privilege of presenting a brand spanking new 3D-printed bionic Iron Man arm to Alex, the most dapper 7-year-old I've ever met.

Special thanks to Albert Manero, OneNote, and #CollectiveProject for their work making artificial limbs like this more affordable for families with kids who want to show the playground how badass they are. Check out to learn more about this incredible project. #goodcause"

We love Alex's reaction to the special gift and the conversation that goes down between the two. Precious!

RDJ is also supporting a children's hospice organization with the amazing opportunity to donate and win the chance to have a full hangout with the star and see the world premiere of Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Thanks Robert, for all you do!
