For the FOURTH year in a row, Noah has decided to request donations instead of presents. Moments of parenthood that make our hearts hurt with pride. Here is what he had to say about "why" he is doing this:
Mommy: Why did you decide to do a fundraiser for your birthday this year?
Noah: I think it is important. I learned in my Weird But True book that an average of 2 people die per second. Well, I think it would be impossible to bring that down to zero, but maybe we can get it down to 1 person per second.
Mommy: Do you think you would have done fundraising for your birthday if Daddy hadn't gotten sick?
Noah: I definitely would not have done this if Daddy hadn’t gotten sick because I wouldn’t know about this stuff. That's a good part of what happened, or else I would have no idea what’s important in life.
