Campbell Bue and Joe Thomas Williams were born just hours apart. This past September 17th, the two friends had a joint birthday party as the turned eleven, but instead of asking their friends to bring gifts, they asked for donations to Inter-Faith Food Shuttle instead. How awesome is that?
Campbell and his mom Rebecca had gleaned broccoli with IFFS earlier in the year, and when the boys decided they wanted donations for their birthdays instead of presents, they chose us as the recipient.
How much did they raise? Almost $350, enough to sponsor a kid – not much younger than them – through BackPack Buddies for an entire school years. These two generous eleven-year-olds made sure another kid will have enough to eat this year.
