People who are experiencing worst situations in life may feel desperate to survive. We may not feel their struggles and we may not know them personally but our prayers would be a great help to them. There is no better feeling than knowing that you have helped somebody making their life easier. God loves a cheerful giver and helping other people in need is pleasing to the eyes of God.
Braden Baker is a 10-year-old boy who has a big heart in reaching out to others. He is blessed with a good heart to share what he has and find ways to help people who are suffering from the same condition that he has. Braden has a hearing impairment and he wears a hearing aid since he was only 7 months old. His dog ate his hearing aid and it was already the second time that he got it broken. His mom told him how lucky he is to have a hearing aid while some other kids can’t even afford to buy one. When Braden heard this, he was inspired to help people who can’t afford to buy a hearing aid.
Braden was serious about helping others who also suffer the same condition as him. So he came up to a plan of raising funds and he was able to gather a total amount of $20,000. He spent the money to buy hearing aids and distribute it personally to kids with hearing impairment. Braden had the opportunity to meet Ellen and guested in her show. Watch the video below and check out Braden’s life story on how he came up with a fundraising plan.
