The youth of Abaco are on a roll. For the second week in a row we’ve chosen a Big Flamingo who isn’t even old enough to vote. Yet they’re doing more good for us than most politicians.
This week we’ve selected Brayden Dam. When most kids get bored they beg their parents for a new video game, or flip on the television, or find ways to toe that line between being mischievous and getting a cut hip.
Brayden decided to launch a charity drive.
Brayden wrote letters and called neighbours, friends and anybody who would listen so he could collect gently used goods to donate to the Abaco Cancer Society’s Thrift Shop. Some might stop once they’d cleaned out their closet of old toys and clothes. Young Dam has managed truckloads. And he continues to collect for the Thrift Shop.
And since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we could not find a better candidate.
