things her son says and does

"Water is more important than toys I will get on my birthday. There are kids who do not even get to turn 5 years old because they have dirty water. This makes me sad.

So, I don't want presents this year or a big party.

Instead, I am asking everyone to give $8 because I am turning 8 years old. Please help my birthday wish come true and help 40 people get clean water." 

Ms. Jenn of the Bits of Beauty blog recently posted about her son, Aidan, who will soon be 8 years old. Instead of receiving presents for his birthday, he would rather ask everyone to donate $8 to charity:water. I'm in awe of this little kid and how, at the tender age of 7, he is already deeply aware of such issues and is actually doing something about it! It's more than I was ever thinking about at his age...

Please read more and find out how you can help Aidan reach his goal here.
