A young boys dreams.
Organized by: Betz Dakala
Hi, I am trying to raise money to help my nine year old, he was diagnosed with ADHD with hyperactivity, he is a very bright and thoughtful child. He has a lot of energy like most kids his age. He has highs and lows, he always wants to know how he can help other children who are in need. He has seen homeless people and actually cries because I don't stop to pick them up. I try to explain that I do as much as I can. He doesn't realize how close we are sometimes to being in the same position. . It was only 4yrs. ago that we were living at Annas House, which is a transitional shelter in this area for women and children. He remembers this, and that they helped us. He wants to raise money, as well as start a lemonade and candy stand, he wants to give the money to help them because as he says, if the men and women are asking for money and are homeless, so are their kids homeless.. Everyday he ask if he can donate his money which he's earned when he shows good behavior, he has saved $40. which he keeps volunteering to give. I am his custodial grandmom and on a fixed income. although I do work parttime due to not being able to afford childcare. I am trying to teach him to be responsible, and learn to be an entrapreneur, i also want him to realize he can do snything if he works hard at it. So this is why I am asking for help if anyone whom is able..
