Little Kids Can Do Big Things

I have this kid.  A five year old with an amazing heart.  He loves to help people and animals.  He is constantly brainstorming up ways to help save the sea turtles, whales, and people in need.  He inspires me daily to be a better person.

When driving home from dinner this weekend he asked out of the blue if there were any countries that needed help.  We thought about it and told him an abbreviated version of what is happening in the Philippines.  He instantly started brainstorming ways to help.  This is what he came up with.


For a $5 donation to the Red Cross Brayden wants to send you a magnet (2.5″ x 3.5″) with his artwork.  Something to hang on your fridge and remind you that little kids can do big things.

Forward your Red Cross donation form to along with your mailing address.  To make sure you are donating directly to the typhoon relief please donate here.

He said his initial goal was $10.  I told him I think he can do a little better.  Whether it’s ten dollars or ten thousand dollars it doesn’t matter to me.  I am just so proud of my boy for constantly challenging himself and me to be better people.

And Brayden wanted me to say thank you for helping the people of the Philippines :)
