$745! Updated with newspaper article

Posted by   + Show Post
I posted about my son before. He turned 9 last Saturday and in lieu of gifts, he asked for donations to be made to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Today was his party with friends. After today's party, he has now raised $745!



I'm so proud if him. I love how excited he is about this!

On Friday, a reporter contacted me because they had heard about his fundraiser. Today, he made the paper! http://cumberlink.com/news/local/carlisle-boy-strives-to-donate-to-make-a-wish/article_c71f4bc6-6da6-11e2-8c33-0019bb2963f4.html

That's amazing! I wish my nephews would be like that. They can be so ungrateful it makes me so mad. They get spoiled by my parents and the oldest two are always complaining on how they want some expensive gift. I tried explaining to my nephew during Christmas that its not about how many gifts you get it's about giving. And how there are so many kids out there who aren't getting gifts. I even told him about kids buying gifts for other kids instead of getting gifts themselves. An all he said was well yea I know but I really want a laptop! I want my son to be aware that there's more needing people out there I can't say he can't have anything because regardless he will be spoiled by his grandparents on both sides . But I just want him to help others more in need then us and have a good feeling that he helped
