THE STORY:

Hi everyone. I'm Kai Martin and on March 5th, I'll be turning 10 years old. For FIVE years, instead of receiving gifts I've been raising money for cancer research and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society every birthday. Even though some people can't believe it, I would rather make a difference then get presents. Since my 6th birthday, people have helped me raise almost $6200 from my original goal of $100 when I was five. I chose Leukemia & Lymphoma Society because my Papa John and my Nana Gail both have these kinds of cancer. I hate cancer so much because it makes so many people sick and I don't want that. This year I have a really big goal. Really, really big. Bigger than ever before. I want to raise $3800. If I can, then in five years AND for my 10th birthday, I will have raised a total of $10,000. My mom said this will be really hard but I told her I want to try. Because fighting cancer is way harder than that. Thank you for your help and please have a GREAT day.
