Last year, he started asking questions about why I give money to various charitable organizations. He was really inspired by make a wish. He looked at me and said, "mom, I always get so much for Christmas, maybe for my birthday, I can donate money to help make some wishes come true." That was for his ninth birthday. We contacted Make a wish and set up his fundraiser. I know others were inspired by a kid with such a big heart. I'm hoping they are just as inspired this year.
Wish him luck!
A week After his birthday party, his total is $1140. He's $60 away from quadrupling his goal. Other parents have reached out to me. They've shared Trenten's story and he's now inspiring others. :)
