Little kids raise big money for rare disease research
How cool is this?! Michael Bendok and Samuel Steiner, two seventh graders from Phoenix Country Day School, were looking for a way to get involved in their community. Samuel’s brother has a rare disease, so they decided to hold a coin drive to raise money for research—and raised $7,000 in just two months! Dr. Bernard Bendok, Michael’s dad and the head of neurosurgery at Mayo Clinic, said that the kid philanthropists are well on their way to reaching their $20,000 goal.
