Joplin boy helps: Making lemonade out of lemons

Here's an article from USA Today about a wonderful young man.  Now if all men were as kind and generous, this world would be a great place.  Obviously, this young man has an understanding of humankind's place in the greater picture and is willing to stand up and take his own place without hesitation.

Yes, I know the $25 is not much money for this huge cause.  Yes, I know that much more is needed.
But---here's the but----this wonderful child took the trouble to do something proactive!  In my book, this makes him very, very special.

Please read the article and let me know if you feel the same way.  I know I want to do my part to help all those lost and injured in that devastation left behind after the tornado.  This young man makes me see the importance of not putting it off anymore.  I'm off to donate........


The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has a young entrepreneur helping out. Luke Greenwood, 11, donated $25 dollars for the pet relief effort in the aftermath of the Joplin, Mo., tornado, says the ASPCA's Emily Schneider.

"He stopped by the Joplin Human Society to donate $25 from running a lemonade stand for 4 days,'' Schneider wrote in an e-mail from Joplin. "It was a cute moment."

She shot another e-mail to say " Luke is a wonderful kid. It was adorable when he explained how he made the lemonade from scratch. He wouldn't give up his secret lemonade recipe!"

The ASPCA has been helping the Joplin Humane Society along with other animal welfare groups. Schneider said they've assisted more than 1,000 animals there and so far have helped reunite more than 400 pets with their owners.
