Local boy gives back for his birthday
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WRSP) —
One local boy is giving back to the community for his birthday.
Nine-year-old Kaesen Graff says his birthday isn't complete without donating to a local organization. This year, he donated toys to HSHS St. John's Children's Hospital.
His mother says a lesson comes with the donations.
"He needs to learn to be a blessing to others," said his mother, Ashleigh Graff. "He's a pretty blessed little boy and I want him to learn he should pass that along to others, and if someone isn't feeling good there's something he can do to put a smile on their face."
Kaeson still had a party, which included about 50 friends, watching The Mighty Ducks, and lots of food.
