Bucks County, PA Boy donates Disney trip money to help Ukraine
What an awesome kid. A 7-year-old boy from Bucks County has donated the money he was saving for a trip to Disney World in Orlando, Florida, to help Ukrainian children in need, according to 6ABC.
Nicholas Perrin had been saving up for two years to take his dream trip to Disney World when he recently heard about the Ukraine crisis at church and wanted to help, reports 6 ABC.
He felt bad for all the Ukrainian children who had to flee their homes to escape violence. He told his mother he wanted to use all his money to help the kids buy new toys ‘because they’re not home anymore,’ 6 ABC showed in a video that appeared to have been posted on the his family’s social media accounts.
How sweet is it? Tears.
So his family helped him take the $250 he had in his Disney savings jar, added much-needed supplies, and donated it all through the Christian Life Center in Bensalem.
Perrin’s Disney fund will go to Convoy of Hope Ukraine and the supplies will go to United Ukrainian American Relief.
Perrin said he hoped his contribution would help and wished the people of Ukraine “a lot of luck.” Awww. I just want to give Nicholas the biggest hug.
I know what you’re thinking. What about his big trip to Disney World that he was saving up for? Well, he’s started a new savings jar and hopes to see Mickey soon.
I love this kid. I don’t know how many kids his age would have done the same thing. I’m sure his parents are so proud of him. He learns valuable lessons at a young age.
