Earning The Money
Diesel Pippert is a seventh grader living in Ohio. He was one of many who headed to the county fair one fine day, but he had another idea in mind. Diesel earned a whopping $15,000 thanks to the premiums from his animal sales. Many would have no idea how to spend the money. Diesel? He wanted to surprise everyone.
Making A Donation
The seventh grader decided to donate all of his earnings to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Like many hospitals around the world, they work to help treat many childhood cancers and illnesses. Any extra money goes toward helping their patients and their families as well as funding any future treatments and research.
Many adults were at the county fair and couldn’t believe how much Diesel earned thanks to his work. As if that wasn’t enough, many were in awe when they learned the seventh grader had been so generous with his money. Diesel’s school district posted his story to social media. It wasn’t long before thousands of people shared the news, and others even shared stories about how the seventh grader had inspired them. Now, many people are donating their country fair earnings to local causes.
It often takes a lot of work to earn $15,000 from the county fair, but one seventh grader was willing to put in the effort. Not only did Diesel get the chance to help the local hospital, but he has also inspired others to share their wealth all around the world.
