What inspired you: When my brother and I received the Flip and the $250, we were so excited! At first, we wanted to go to Target and get a whole bunch of toys because, "What 11 year old wouldn't want to spend a whole bunch of money on toys!?" Our parents told us that we were allowed to do whatever we wanted with the money. We thought about it for a few days and realized that we didn't really need more toys! Since our mom is diabetic, we thought of the idea to give the money to The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. It would be nice if they could find a way to cure diabetes someday! We are very glad that we made the decision to be selfless instead of selfish!
What I learned: My brother and I have learned that it feels much better inside to help someone instead of buying something for yourself. More toys isn't something that we need. We think it feels way better to help somebody instead of getting something that you don't really need!
