A Touching Story – You Can Help

Author: admin Helping Others, News

I have to say that I read a lot on the Internet every day. Sometimes when I am sitting here at the computer I have a few moments of what I like to call “free time” if that word really even exist in my world. Anyway with my so called free time I normally scan Yahoo! for the latest news for the day. I feel its appropriate for me to at least try to keep up with what’s going on in the world that I live in ya know?

Today, however, I was struck by something that really just spoke to me through the computer. I read an article titled “Little Boy’s Art Pays For …” and so naturally I clicked it to see what was this 5 year old little boys artwork paying for? and furthermore how was a 5 year old drawing art that was worthy of being sold?

What I saw when I clicked the link blew me away and really touched my heart. You can see the video here watch now. I met a little boy Aiden Reed who is only 5 years old and battling cancer. His family is struggling financially to keep up with the inflating medical cost to treat Aiden for his disease. I suppose the current state of our economy isn’t helping the situation for his parents either. So this story sounds at this point like many you have probably heard prior to reading this post. What I am about to tell you next, however, will be TOTALLY different from what you have ever seen.

Aiden loves all things “monster” or “scary” related and so he frequently draws pictures of little monsters. I think this “drawing” helps him escape the pain and situation he is currently living through. His aunt had a great idea…. sell Aiden’s artwork to help raise money for his medical care. To date they have sold almost 5,000 of this little 5 year old boys drawing @ only $12.00 each. What an amazing story? This kid is a 5 year old entrepreneur FOR A GOOD CAUSE and he’s talented too.

Here is my challenge to EVERY SINGLE PERSON READING MY BLOG. It’s almost Christmas and heck right now it’s Thanksgiving. It’s a time where we are all thankful for what blessings we have in our lives. Everyday I wake up I am thankful for my health that’s something this little boy simply can’t be thankful for right now. I, however, want to help him get to the point to where he wakes up on Thanksgiving day (maybe a year or so from now) and IS THANKFUL FOR HIS HEALTH. In order to do that we need to make sure this little boy has the money he needs to fight this cancer and beat it.

What greater gift can any of us give than the gift of hope? Hope of survival and a long life to a little boy only 5 years old but filled with so much talent. Isn’t that what this time of year is really about?

MY CHALLENGE TO YOU –

I know about 5,000 people will read this blog post each time I talk about it. I want each one of you to buy one of Aiden’s drawings for only $12.00. Here is the link for you to select the drawing you want – Aiden’s Drawings – Purchase Now.

I am willing to match the total of drawings purchased by the AM Live! Family here! That means if collectively you guys purchase 1000 drawings then ill go in and purchase 1,000 myself! Together our goal should be to at least buy 3,000 of these drawings for this little boy. We can’t change anything if we don’t take a first step. Step one is to provide his family with the money they need to treat his cancer. Step two is we let the doctors do their jobs and save this little boys life.

It’s worth every penny of $12. Go do it now and post back here once you have purchased so I can keep a tally. I make $0 off this… for those of you who would be so crazy as to even ask a question like that. I have never spoken to this kid or his family. I have just seen this story all over the Internet and together with all of you we can show people what power the Internet really can provide.

Let’s make a difference.

    I’ve always been touched by generosity of all people in the United States, just the regular folks, no matter their age, their financial resources. I’ve gained a lot of respect for people around me and learned a lot since I moved here in 2000. Anthony, thank you for sharing the story and letting us be a part of “rescue team”

  6. Carri Bearg

    Just purchased the “purple monster”. Plan to post Aiden’s story on my Facebook. Thank you for letting us all know about this so we can help.

  7. Janet Ray

    Dear Aidan, Wow, you are so cute a really quite the arthritis, I am really looking forward to getting my picture to hang in my office, I will send your pictures to some of my friends I know they would like some too. I see, you are very brave and sure the doctors will help you stay strong and I will keep watch for more pictures. You’re Friend Jan

  8. Andy

    Thxs Anthony, This is a great thing to do for this family. I purchased two pictures. I love your books and videos. I want to thank you for making things understandable. You give so much value to everything you do. Keep up the good work

    I am always saddened by the children that get Cancer. I am glad this little boy can still smile once in a while and I am glad to help even if I am unemployed now. I hope we all help th efamily a lot.

  10. John Flesner

    Thanks for sharing this story. I lost my wife to pancreatic cancer in May 2009. We also received much generosity, glad to have the opportunity to give back.

  11. Marc Galyean

    Anthony,
    this is a great way to be able to help this family and an opportunity to give back. I appreciate your honesty and integrity. These types of stories is what motivates me to never give up and appreciate what I have. “Your not a failure when you fail, your a failure when you quite”.

    Thanks,
    Marc

    Andy, this is another example of you giving us something to believe in, a good man, doing a good job, in a kinder, gentler world, where one can make money, and share it, without having to take it from somebody. You are a good example of an answer to what is wrong with this world. I know this is not the place to express myself, unless this goes to you to read, but Freud once said, (one of the few things that made sense,) that to be happy a man needed something he loved doing, someone he loved, and a secure future that he looked forward to, and for me you have provided that, more than money, or a system, you have also provided a means to happiness to so many of us who would be lost without this beacon of hope, in a Godless world. So keep up the good work, and so will we?

    John D. Ayers

    (And yes I am lagging in my work, but developing a larger plan, wanting to read the whole book first, before I do anything, but I am more and more impressed by your creativity, and thoroughness, down to the almost daily reminders to me of my priorities, of which you are one of the most important.
    Thanks again, for all you do.

    oh awesome, I would have loved to help by buying his drawings but as at present I am not financially capable of doing that. oh maybe some other time. Keep the good work up……

  14. Anna Daniels

    My Heart was touched by this little boy with such a fight. Thank – you for this e-mail Anna Daniels

  15. Rachel

    My heart goes out to Aiden and his family, may God Bless them! It’s also very touching to see Anthony do something so generous. I have accepted his challenge. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

    Hi all,, always very sad when you hear about kids that go thru stuff like cancer,, I think whats more frustrating at times is the feeling of helplessness. My situation is such that I’m unable to participate in this,, or so I thought, then I thought some more. Would the parents of Aiden like to start a Paybox (paybox.me) account for him then let us know what his referral link is and then those that don’t have an account can join under Aiden which will earn him a referral fee. We can then transfer “funds” to his account, I will start by donating $100 (paybox dollars) A little bit “left field” but might be worth a crack 🙂

  17. Marilyn

    Tellman, this is such a nice story BRAVO for the small boy who used his
    creative genius to help someone out!

    Have a Great and Happy Thanksgiving. from me to YOU and your Family

    Looks like we are doing gooooooood ! Let’s buy more! More of my readers need to comment here and let me know if you’re taking action. Also repost this web address on Twitter, Facebook and Myspace! Let’s get this viral and raise some serious money for the little guy.

    Anthony, you continue to happily surprise me, by doing such kind, human things. As a mother of 2, healthy beautiful children, breaks my heart to ever hear about a child in need or in pain. My own children, thought this was an amazing thing. They pulled together, $6 each, and I picked up shipping, to purchase a picture. If anything can stay true, its you, please continue to put the “good” energy back into our world. God Bless, and hope my joining your program, will be a good choice on our part. In need for help ourselves. JA

  23. Gary

    Thanks Anthony! I had heard about this little man’s fight and his creativity but had not had any time to pursue it. I will go get a piece of his work!
    Cancer sucks. I have had too much contact with it personally. The bravery of such young people astounds me and humbles me. I don’t know if I could be so brave. God bless him and you as well for your generosity.
    Gary

  24. Janet Dalton

    Thanks for alerting us of this precious little boy! I am not interested in buying a picture,but can donate the $12.00. Will that count towards what you match?

  25. Maurice. Connecticut....

I was inspired a while back by a young lady in Windsor,Ct Alix. who started a lemonade stand which grew over the years To form a nonprofit club of Creative children from all over the world to use Their creative skills to help in situation like this and other.The Creative Children Helping Others to Grow.C.C.H.O.G wanted to start with my 12.Yrs old who wasn’t ready but now touched by Aidens story getting busy this minite to organize other talented youngster to get involve year round.and so I turn the poem I wrote into a song for her other friend to sing Titled[Aiden I admire your getting it on!] lets hope we can get all young people to start texting for a great cause concern father in Ct,

    absolutely! i will match any donations also… there is a place on there where you can just donate without even buying a picture. keep up the good work everyone!

  27. jasmin

    I think aiden is a very strong caragious boy to fight as long as he has been and be so creative they all very beautiful and he’s very lucky to have a loving supportive family and friends to always be there and see him threw everything he does and threw his struggles

  28. Pam Ray

    I think it’s great that Aiden is doing what he can to earn the money. I bought sponge bob and friends. $15.00 for such a worth while chance to help a fellow American family. And, they get more, because Anthony will match $12.00. Wow, what a deal!!! Thanks for allowing me to help.

  29. Connie Biblis

    Talk about out of the mouths of babe’s, Aiden can teach us all about how to handle adversity. Just donated $20.00 to the cause. Wish it could have been more, maybe next year after our business is up and running. Thank you for all you do, and allowing us to help this incredible young boy.
