In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the country has been coming together to help bring relief to the victims. Joining the efforts of celebrities, churches, and disaster relief organizations to bring comfort and support to the victims, is 5-year-old Jett Brown.
The young boy lives in Philadelphia but was originally from Houston. When he found out about the devastation in his home town, he knew he had to do something to help.
Margaret Brown, Jett's mother, said, "Jett's grandparents are down there and we've been talking to them for the past few days and so, of course, Jett was concerned and we wanted to do something to help out."
The 5-year-old opened a lemonade stand in order to raise money. He sold lemonade while wearing a Superman cape and a Texan hat.
Margaret Brown said, "It was something we could do to get Jett involved. We are just amazed with the outpouring of support with Philadelphians and people around the country."
"What started out as a simple lemonade stand really has grown and we just want to help any way we can the people down in Houston and all over Texas," Brown continued.
Jett is sending over $400 to the Red Cross to help with hurricane relief. All of the funds were raised through the stand.
Jett is not alone in his endeavors, as other young entrepreneurs around the country have been raising money for Harvey victims as well.
It is encouraging to see young and old around the country putting forth the effort to help the victims of this storm. What do you think about this? Let us know your thoughts on Facebook!
