This child is awesome! Yesterday was his 6th birthday, and being that he is my oldest nephew, he has always held a special place in my heart! The kids is clever, cute, sweet, gentle, and overall amazing!
Yesterday when he received a birthday card in the mail that held $50, he decided that he wanted to use the money to donate to Children's Hope Chest. At first he thought that he would give 40 of the dollars to feed children in Africa, and the other 10, he would use to buy himself a remote control car.
I spoke to him when he was on the way to drop the money off at Hope Chest, and he said "Do you want to know how many children I can feed? 163!!!" He was so excited!
When he got there, he decided that he wanted to give all the money instead of keeping any for himself. How wonderful is that?!?! Brandi, my sister-in-law told him that they were well on their way to feed one child for an entire year. He was so excited about that... he even asked Brandi to 'tweet and ask other people to help'. Adorable.
Currently in the Brayden's birthday fund there is $199.75 which is enough to feed 799 meals! If you would like to participate in my nephew's charity, go to http://www.hopechest.org/ and click give. In the notes section write "Brayden'sbday / Africa food" They'll give me an update or you can email my sister-in-law at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me how many meals so that I can share with Brayden. (one meal is $0.25)
Aunt Laura and Uncle Slim are so proud of the man you are becoming! We want to be just like you when we grow up! Keep up the awesome work! We love you!!!
