Nothing can destroy the power of true friendship and two first graders prove just how powerful it can be during a time of devastation and heartbreak. On February 21, 2015 in Normandy, Missouri, a massive fire left dozens of families displaced, including seven-year-old Ryan Branson and his family.
His best friend Kollin Clark was deeply saddened by the incident and wanted to find a way to help. He asked his mom to help him create a video to reach the users of Facebook and ask them to donate money to Ryan’s family. Within five days over $8,000 was donated to the Go-Fund-Me page that Kollin and his mom created.
