NEW YORK– A 9-year-old successfully collected $500 for the March of Dimes on his birthday after requesting monetary donations from friends and family for the charity, instead of gifts.
Gary Brown showed the same generosity two years ago by donating money to a charity, and decided to do it again this year for the March of Dimes.
“This a lesson that we’ve taught him all the time at the home and throughout church, about giving. To be a blessing to other people, ” mother Audrey Brown said.
Brown’s money was accepted towards the March For Babies, a charity which helps mothers have full-term pregnancies and healthy births.
