Talk about doing amazing things!
One 7-year-old is gaining national attention for raising over $10,000 for elementary schools in Flint, Michigan.
According to Sunny Skyz, Isiah Britt (with the help of his parents) created a GoFundMe page with the sole goal of raising money to purchase hand sanitizer for Flint’s Eisenhower Elementary School after learning students couldn’t wash their hands.
He wrote on the page:
Hi everyone! My name is Isiah and I am a 2nd grader at Buckland Mills Elementary in Gainesville, VA. I want to help the students at Eisenhower Elementary School in Flint Michigan. They have a lot of water bottles from big companies but they still can’t wash their hands at school. So I am going to raise money to buy hand sanitizer for their school. $500 will help buy 20 cases of hand sanitizer (one case for each classroom). Once we meet our goal, we will have the hand sanitizer shipped directly to Eisenhower Elementary School. Thank you for helping me!
In two weeks, Isiah squashed the goal and he was able to send sanitizer to three additional schools.
You rock, Isiah!
