On April 27, 2013, It’s All About the Kids Foundation received a letter and several checks. The letter was from a young boy named Colin. Co-Founder Angela Brannon was in tears as she read the letter . We have removed his last name to protect his privacy. It reads:
Dear It’s All About the Kids Foundation,
My name is Colin and I had a party for my 8th birthday. Instead of my friends buying me presents, I asked that they donate money to your organization. We raised $510 at my party! Please give it to kids who are sick and may need a cure.
Thank you so much Colin, your wonderful family and friends for helping our charity !
