It's that time of year again when kids start making mental checklists of all the JUNK they want for Christmas. So it's kind of refreshing to hear about a kid who's NOT doing that.
Over the last few months, an eight-year-old in Bakersfield, California named Jaxon Evans has been running a Kool-Aid stand to raise money, and plans to use it to buy Christmas presents for HOMELESS kids.
So far, he's raised $1,600, and he's trying to make it to $2,500. And it sounds like he will, because now the story is making national news.
Plus, he's getting some help from Kraft, which sent him a bunch of boxes of Kool-Aid, so he doesn't have to cut into his profits buying more.
And instead of looking forward to Christmas, Jaxon is waiting for Black Friday., because that's when he's hitting Toys R Us and buying as much as possible.
On top of their normal Black Friday sales, his local Toys R Us store is giving him an extra 10% off on everything he buys.
