Meet Colin, he’s a fifth grader at Gwynedd Mercy Academy, he cares about kids with cancer. You may remember a few years back when he had a birthday party where he accepted donations for Peter Powerhouse and no gifts for him.
Colin has just completed a service project for school. He fundraised to help us provide meals for families of children with childhood cancer. But he didn’t stop there; when he came up short he gave his own savings too. Let’s face it having people hand you donations feels a lot better then opening your own wallet and handing over the money you’ve been saving for something cool.
Monday, Colin and his mom meet me at Chick-fil-A. Colin handed me a check to cover lunch for the families at CHOP in King of Prussia and his mom was able to match his hard work at her company and the amount became lunch times two!
He helped load the meal into the car and then delivered and setup a buffet in the oncology floor, family room. When the families know that lunch is served they flock to the table. This meal is so valuable to them! This project is so valuable to Colin!
When we teach our children to love, to care and to serve we raise decent, caring adults! Well-done mom and dad, well-done Gwynedd Mercy Academy and most importantly well-done and thank you, Colin!
