in #CASE you missed it… Boy Has “Free Toy” Stand For The Less Fortunate
Florida six-year-old finds out some kids don’t have toys, so he gives his all away.
Blake Work is only six years old, but he has a huge heart and already wants to help people less fortunate. Some kids set up lemonade stands, but this little guy set up in his driveway to give away his toys to other kids in need.
The inspiration for his toy giveaway came when he was getting stressed out while cleaning up his room."He was overwhelmed with all the toys and we talked about those toys being blessings,” says Blake’s mom, Melissa Ann Work. “We explained to him that not every kid gets to have toys like that, if any. That REALLY hurt his heart.” And that’s when he got the idea for the toy giveaway.
Since they live in a suburban neighborhood in Hudson, Florida, Blake’s mom spread the news of the toy stand on local garage sale websites. And for four hours he sat at the stand to give away his toys. Parents were happy to take what he was offering and the toys that he didn’t give away, he donated to his kindergarten teacher to use as rewards in the classroom.
