My kids don’t usually get to into fundraising at school. Probably because I don’t usually get to into it. But there’s something about the St. Jude’s special I watched on tv once that’s always going to stick with me. Maybe, probably, because I watched it with Erik and it was all about a little boy who had cancer.
So I gave a tiny little push and explained what the fundraiser was for. Both boys decided they wanted to sign up and raise money.
Then Milo added $45.61 of his own money.
I asked him if he was sure he wanted to give that much, since it’s about half his itouch savings. He looked at me, then he asked, “Well, if I pay this money where is it going to?” I confirmed that it was for the kids that were sick and he just shrugged his shoulders and said yes, that’s how much he wanted to give.
