if only money grew on trees.


This is Ashton. He is 8-years-old and loves to laugh. He likes fish and puffins, wrestling with his twin brother, and playing football and basketball. He also loves money. Like, a little obsessively. He can sit for hours and count pennies and tally coins. He once wanted to be a banker when he grows up, but then decided there was too much paperwork.


He has devoted three months of his time to raising money for charity: water. He hopes to bring in at least $600 to help purchase a drilling rig that can drill near 80 wells each YEAR in countries that so desperately need clean water.


A poem, by Ashton:

Can you help? Every penny counts. Just ask Ashton. Donate here. Or maybe you can help spread the word on Facebook and Twitter? Thank.You.

    So cool! We love charity:water!  Our daughter also raised money for them and we were just so impressed with how they do things.  I can’t wait to tell my daughter about your boys.
