Little Donor With a Big Heart

February 25, 2009

Roman’s birthday party was a little different this year. He and his mom decided to have all his friends bring donations for Phoenix Rescue Mission’s families instead of gifts when he turned four.

I asked him why he wanted to donate and his answer was simple,

“Because people need stuff.”

All Roman wanted in return was for someone to give him a high five when he came to drop off all the canned goods, diapers, clothing and toiletries he and his friends collected. We were happy to oblige…


Roman is right, people DO need stuff. A list of our current needs can be found on our website www.phoenixrescuemission.org if you’d like to donate too.

    Why is it that kids seem to get giving to others more than adults do? Kids always set a great example.
    Great story, thanks for sharing!

    You’re welcome. He was also very polite and well spoken for someone who just turned four!
