Young Boy Plays Santa for Native Education

December 14, 2010

Typically at this time of year, little boys and girls are penning their letters to Santa Claus about the things they hope to discover under the Christmas tree.
But Samuel, a young boy from New York State, is different. Instead of hoping to receive, he is giving to those in need. Samuel sent a letter to the American Indian College Fund along with a check for $25, the amount of his allowance, to be used “to help Native American people who are struggling to pay for an education.”
Samuel writes, “I am allowed to give money from my allowance to charities. I have always respected Native American people. Each week I am allowed to give up to $25, so that is what I am giving…Thank you for helping Native American people in need.”
Thank you, Samuel, for demonstrating what it means to give during this season of giving!
