In 2009 I got an email about a kid who'd saved up his allowance for a year and donated all of it, every penny, to City Kittes, our local stray-cat rescue. I did a blog post about it and a few months later, another blog post, this time about how my own post had circled back to me. Well, that story circled around the internet and every year Evan kept donating all of his money to City Kitties and it spiraled, larger, and larger. I got to meet Evan one year at one of the City Kitties art auctions, he was shy and quiet and I didn't want to overwhelm him, but I felt I'd met a real hero -- someone who was completely selfless -- the exact opposite of people who move out and leave their pets on the back porch to fend for themselves.

In any event, the story swirled around to the top of Reddit and then the Huffington Post and really exploded. And yesterday, Evan was on the Ellen Degeneres show and Ellen had a suprise up her sleeve.

I won't blow the surprise, but I'll link to this page at City Kitties.

When I got to the surprise my jaw dropped.

And then I set up a monthly donation to them because if a ten year old kid can think selflessly, I can at least try.
