Collecting Donations for Boston

Today’s post is not a normal “project”.  This is the note my eight year old son brought home about donations for Boston:

8 year old Boy collections donations for Boston Bombing

Instead of his usual “I’m going to my friend’s house” line, he asked if he could go door to door canvasing our neighborhood asking for donations for Boston.  Who cares that the fundraiser is for 6th graders and he is in 2nd.   He has such a huge heart.  So after a couple of hours of going door to door, he raised $91!  he was so excited but really wanted to reach $100, so he ran up stairs and took $9 from his wallet and added it to his pile.  Here is picture of him running out the door to deliver it to school.

He is my inspiration to do a little more, help others, and your are never too small to make a difference.  And thanks to all of our neighbors who trusted him to take their donations safely to school, you made his year.
