Wordless Wednesday – Proud Mama Moment

2 weeks ago, my oldest son received the “youth in philanthropy” award for his fundraising efforts for local charities. This = a very proud mama! 🙂

  1. Definitely a proud mama moment!! What a little sweetheart! I didn’t even know there was such an award! That is absolutely amazing! In twenty years perhaps we can make plans for an arranged marriage between your son and my daughter (I’ll make sure she has a BIG dowry)!!

    • oooh. I like that idea! 🙂 He received the award from our local chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. He started by organizing a 2-week read-a-thon when he was 5 and he asked friends and family to sponsor him (I sent the email for him, but it was completely his idea – which is both weird for such a young kid, and yet totally normal for how his brain works). Everyone thought it was really cute since he was 5….until he read 50 books and they had to pay up! haha. He has just done little things like toy drives and raffles and other collections like that since then, but he has big plans for the future…apparently when we win the lotto because I’m not sure how to keep financing these plans! 🙂
