11-year-old Jonathan Werner from Cambridge, Minnesota is spreading holiday cheer to an incredible 120 foster children this Christmas. His generosity and selflessness were inspired by his own father’s experience in foster care.
Growing up, Jonathan heard stories from his dad about the difficult times he faced while in the foster care system. Determined to make a difference, Jonathan became a Boy Scout and used the money he earned from selling popcorn to buy gifts for every single foster child in Kanabec County and Isanti County.
But Jonathan’s kindness doesn’t stop there. He also plans on adopting another county in the coming year, showing his commitment to supporting and uplifting those in need.
The community has rallied behind Jonathan, with local leaders and volunteers offering their assistance to ensure that all of the gifts reach the foster children in time for Christmas. Jonathan is grateful for the support he has received in fulfilling his mission to spread joy and make this holiday season extra special for the foster kids.
At just 11 years old, Jonathan has a heart of gold and is truly making a difference in the lives of these children. His selfless act of kindness is a reminder of the power of giving and the importance of spreading joy and cheer during the holiday season.
