If You Think Kids Can't Make a Difference...
Mason is a 7 year old boy from the UK. As you can see from this picture, he wants to be a Marine Biologist! He will change the world...
In the wee hours of September 1, 2012 (4am to be exact!), Mason started his 2 hour car ride to Mount Snowdon, to make the 3560 foot climb to the summit, after a couple months of training his body to get ready for the climb!
Why, you ask, would a 7 year old boy do this? For fun? NOPE!!! He did it all for the Ian Somerhalder Foundation! In fact, this little guy, with the big heart, raised, ON HIS OWN, $800.00 for ISF and the Animal Sanctuary. Mason started asking for donations in July. He created a website, and had people donate directly on there. Of course, Mason had the help of his wonderful mom, Grace (fitting name, is it not?), and together they Facebooked, Tweeted, and got others to donate to Mason's cause. So, if you have it in mind that kids can not do anything, can not make a difference, and do not have a voice to be heard, remember this 7 year old boy.
