A 13-year-old boy is raising money to take his brothers to the Bulkley Valley Exhibition because they can’t afford to go this year.
Glenn Mcleod and his two younger brothers Isaiah, 9, and Kai, 7, have set up a stand at the intersection of Queen Street and Second Avenue and are selling sweets and cool refreshments until the end of Friday.
Mcleod told his brothers the stand is raising money to help send him to visit his father in Vancouver, when in fact, he will use the money to take the duo to the fall fair this weekend.
“My mom doesn’t have the money this year, so I tricked them into thinking it’s for me,” said Mcleod. “I’m hoping to raise enough money for them to get in, go on a few rides and get some treats.”
As of Friday afternoon, they had raised roughly $350 over the last couple of days.
“There are not many kids his age who would do this. He’s so sweet,” said his aunt Kathleen.
This isn’t the first time this little kid with a big heart has done this.
Two years ago, he also set up a similar stand to raise money to take the kids to the fall fair.
