Random Act of Kid-ness: Paying Forward Mega Millions

This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from Maryland, where 19 year old cancer survivor Nicholas Ruth plans to donate much of his $250,000 Mega Millions winnings to organizations that helped him when he was sick. Among the list of organizations Nicholas plans to give back to are the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Believe in Tomorrow, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He said:

“People keep saying I deserve it and what I went through, but there’s people far off worse than what I went through that can use the money more than me and I’m just glad I can help them out.”

We think this is an incredible act of kindness. Read more here.
