Meet Danny, 16, and Michael, 9, Peera, two brothers who have designed flyers that theyâ€™ve placed on recyclable cans and bottles at neighborsâ€™ doors with a message that says â€œWe Will Redeem These Cans and Bottles for Cash,â€ in an effort to raise money to help needy Assyrian children in Northern Iraq.
They also offered a little incentive to pick up the cans and bottles from the neighborhood, and deliver them to their grandmotherâ€™s house in Modesto, where she was able to help the boys convert their goods into cash, by driving them to a nearby recycling center. Danny and Michaelâ€™s project collected a total of $200.
This encouraging story was offered by Danny and Michaelâ€™s mother, Alberta. Congratulations Danny and Michael on your benevolent efforts, grandma for helping the boys, and to Alberta for raising such wonderful young men.
