Sick Boy Raises Money for Other Sick Children

You can help a boy collect money for Make-A-Wish simply by sending a letter to Santa.
Tannersville, Monroe County – Brayden Walsh has been reading so many Christmas wishes he could probably qualify for a job as Santa’s secretary.

The nine year old is collecting letters to Santa to raise money for Make-A-Wish. He’ll
give his collection to Macy’s. The store is donating $1 for every wish list to
help grant wishes for sick children.

Brayden knows how special wishes are. He is often in the hospital dealing with Cystic Fibrosis
and an immune system disease. Two years ago Make-A-Wish surprised him with a
gift, a trip to Disney during Star Wars week. “It was amazing,” said his mother
Theresa. She added, "They gave Brayden an amazing wish and we want other
children to be able to experience the same joy that we had."

Theresa said schools and churches have already helped them collect hundreds of letters.
They’d like to get hundreds, if not thousands more. "We want to give back
to Make a Wish,” she said.

While helping others, Brayden told Eyewitness News his gift list this year is short.
He’d like a cure for his illnesses, and a nerf gun.

You can mail letters for Brayden’s collection to:

PO Box 404
Tannersville, PA 18372
