Nine year old boy donates birthday money to VETS Canada



Conner Pedwell is about as selfless as they come, never mind that he’s only nine years old. Conner celebrated his 9th birthday on 24 September and instead of presents he asked his friends to make a donation to VETS Canada. He received $170 and when a follower of the VETS Canada Facebook page heard this story he matched the donation. Conner is proof that anyone can help to end Veterans homelessness, it doesn’t matter how old you are. You can read about Conner’s story here and watch a video here.  Photo credit RDNewsNow
