Charlie Simpson

Charlie Simpson is a 7 year-old boy from London who made national headlines today for his charitable work to raise funds for children in Haiti. He asked people to sponsor him in a bike ride around a local park, (about 5 miles), so he could raise funds to aide the children of Haiti. He did this all on his own, it was not part of an organized fundraiser. He has raised over 200,000 pounds (about $140,000). What a wonderful child to have in this world. He is inspiring and a reminder to me that there are still people in this world who want to do good. It is also a reminder to always let children be free thinkers and to let them try out ideas. Thank you Charlie.

Here is Charlie's website if you want to know more and make a donation.

    Cute little fella, ain't he?
