Kids love toys, right? They love receiving them. So to give whatever you receive away, takes a huge amount of heart to do. But children are wonderful beings with the purest of capacities to love, and that’s what Chase Branscum did with the 500 gifts he received for his 8th birthday – he gave them all away for Christmas – to a charity known as Toys for Tots.
How did he get to give away so many? He had a party for his birthday!
“Not once has he made a comment, “so when do I get something for my birthday”, his mum said.
Chase commented “I already have toys and kids don’t.”
Simple as that. It’s a no-brainer for him.
And it was all his idea! He wanted to do this, he wanted to organise the gift-raising. His friends seem inspired by it and his mum looks very proud. What parent wouldn’t be?
Around 100 people came to his party. With Chase at the helm, they made it happen together.
He’s already thinking of what to do to help next year.
