Girl Raises $1,500 For Charity With Thanksgiving Boxes

When you’re an Eagles defender or Bill Gates, giving back to the community is an easy job to sustain. For others, simpler lifestyles don’t always allow sizable donations. Still, 7-year-old Alex Fischer, determined to help feed the homeless, raised $1,500 by selling Thanksgiving boxes.

“I just thought it would be nice to do Thanksgiving food boxes for people in need. I want other people to have a happy Thanksgiving.” [said Fischer.]

To raise a goal of $150, the Fischer family threw together goodie bags filled with canned goods and stuffing. Besides door-to-door selling, Fischer opted to put up a lemonade stand. Impressed by their daughter, parents James and Lisa called for donations online.

“Your donation is twofold; you’ll be helping a family enjoy a homemade Thanksgiving meal together and also helping Alex learn the joy of helping others in her community.” [wrote Fischer’s parents.]

The whopping $1,500 will feed 100 families, while any remainder will go to the Charlotte Rescue Mission. Looks like Fischer is truly in for some holiday cheer!
