12-year-old Philanthropist Noah Lamaide Saves Grandmother from Foreclosure
12-year-old Noah Lamaide has just raised over $10,000 in an effort to save his grandmother’s home from foreclosure.
This little philanthropist has been on top of his game for a few years now. When he was 9, Noah’s mother encouraged him to do some community service. Noah took it a step further, and with his mom’s help, he set up a website, “Noah’s Dream Catcher Network” to promote all of his charity work. Since then, he’s fundraised for a variety of causes, even sending a cancer patient on vacation!
His main inspiration has been his grandmother, Janice Sparhawk who has been a foster parent for a few years now. So when he found out that his grandmother’s house was going into foreclosure last January, the little hero went to the rescue. He wrote on his site: “My Grandma, in case you don’t know her, has a heart of gold. If I have 400 friends give $25.00 I can give her her home back for Valentines Day!!!”
Lucky for Noah, he had more than a few friends. Donations poured in from across the country, and after a month, his grandmother was able to pay off the bank.
What a hero!
