8 year old boy raises hundreds of dollars for sick kids

An eight-year-old boy in Mission, British Columbia, Canada, wanted to help sick kids – and was quickly able to raise hundreds of dollars to donate to charity.

Max Chequis, started small. His grandmother explained that if he filled up a one-liter bottle with dimes, he’d have about $450. So, he spent some time collecting dimes -- and came away with more than $200.

Then he set up a lemonade stand to collect more donations. Word began to spread on social media and those donations poured in.

When he was all done, he had more than $700, which he donated to a Cops For Cancer cycling campaign. The officers on bicycles actually stopped by Max’s house to pick up the donation.
