And the grandson of the year award goes to Noah Lamaide!
The 12-year-old Wisconsin boy came to his grandmother’s rescue after she fell behind on her mortgage payments for the home that has been in their family for three generations.
Noah’s 72-year-old grandmother, Janice Sparhawk, couldn’t get government help with a payment option, so her grandson stepped in, raising over $10,000 in just a month.
Noah’s giving ways didn’t start with his grandma, in 2010 he started Noah’s Dream Catcher Network to organize community service projects and give do-gooders a chance to donate to important causes.
Noah told ABC News that:
“I want to help someone who is very dear to me for my next dream… My Grandma has fallen on hard times and is going to lose her home.”
Noah wrote on his website. “My Grandma in case you don’t know her has a heart of gold. She has given so much to our community since I can remember!!!”
The world needs more kids like Noah; what an inspiration.
