A boy in Ohio is trying to earn money for his grandmother’s funeral. I applaud him, he’s going to earn a valuable lesson. Let’s just hope Obama’s FDA doesn’t come down on him for not having a license. The city either.
Did I really just take a snipe at Obama after watching such a heart-warming video?
Bobbie Diamond-Anderson was only 52 years young when she passed away on Father’s Day. Soon after, Michael eavesdropped on his mom, Teresa and dad, Michael Sr., who are both on disability, discussing how they had some monies saved to put toward the funeral expenses but were short $5,000.
Michael, who had a very loving relationship with his grandmother, reportedly wanted to help desperately, so he approached his mom with his idea: “He just came up and said, ‘Can I have a Kool-Aid stand; I want to help out with the funeral.’ And, I told him yeah because that’s what she would have said. Just let him do it. Even if he makes 20 cents; let him do it,” Teresa told Fox News.
The Garfield Heights, Ohio, third grader put his wheels in motion, and by Tuesday, he had set up the Kool-Aid stand. Once a local radio station got wind of the boy’s efforts, though, Michael had customers waiting to buy his drink in droves, with some reportedly driving from across the state and handing over as much as $100 for a cup of the sweet concoction.
