Jack Draws Anything

Anyone heard of this amazing kid?

He's raised nearly £23,000 for Sick Kids Hospital in Edinburgh, Scotland. He's raising money because they have been treating his younger brother, who has been ill, and he wanted to give back. So, with the help of his parents, he started a blog, vowing to take requests to draw pictures if people would donate some money to Sick Kids. Such an inspirational kid- and very wise for his six years.


I donated a few months ago, when I heard, to push him beyond his initial £1,000 goal... He smashed that, and many more goals which followed. Today he posted the drawing I requested. Dumbo the Elephant, and a Rainbow.


From his post:
A lovely request from Laura that Jack had no problem wanting to do. Once he heard Laura's wee story he tried his absolute hardest.
My name is Laura and once upon a time I, too, had a little boy named Jack. He became very sick just after he was born and was treated by The Sick Kids Hospital here in Toronto. He is an angel now. I was hoping maybe you could draw a picture of Dumbo the elephant with a rainbow as it holds a very special place in our hearts for our little Jack.
Jack says, I hope the picture doesn't make you sadder but makes you a little bit happier.

Happier, indeed.

And...my heart melts. That is some cuteness right there. Nevermind that the elephant looks like he's shitting rainbows. ;)

How incredibly sweet and the namesake is none other than perfect.

What a sweet kid. And smart too. He even got the rainbow colours in the correct order "ROYGBIV"-red, orange, yellow, gree, blue, indigo, violet. Impressive.

Emily said...

gree = green, because I failed to proof read.
