Eight-year-old Jaxon Evans is what some may call a savvy business man. He has collected $1600 from his Kool-Aid stand, but he doesn’t plan on keeping a single cent. In fact, Jaxon’s goal is to raise a total of $2500 before Black Friday to buy presents for homeless children.
You may be wondering how this budding philanthropist was able to raise so much money. For starters, he came up with the slogan “It’s cool to aid kids.” Then he created fliers to give out at school and his mom alerted friends and family through Facebook of the great cause for which he was raising money. The local news even covered the story about his thoughtful gesture!
Not only will Jaxon be donating toys to the Bakersfield Homeless Center in California, but he will also be adding nonperishable food and baby products to the list of items these kids need.
This Thoughtful Thursday, we thank Jaxon for his generosity and compassion.
