Are you as amazing as a 3rd grader?

Are you as amazing as a third grader? 

Two years ago, six-year-old Ben Hinkle sees our “Support the Troops” edition of Jolt Gum in a store and decides he wants to raise money to send the gum to soldiers overseas for Christmas. On his own, he raises enough money to buy three hundred packs of Jolt Gum for the soldiers. We matched him 1 for 1, so because of Ben’s efforts alone, 600 packs of Jolt Gum were sent to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan in time for the holidays.

Ben says “I only wanted to help soldiers stay awake and smile, and maybe meet a pen pal! Well, I made TONS of pen pals & have even met some of those soldiers!”

This year, Ben decided he wants to raise money again to send Jolt Gum yellow ribbon packs to soldiers overseas. Ben’s having his 9th birthday party this weekend and actually asked that his friends not bring gifts, but help support his goal of sending TWO THOUSAND packs of Jolt gum overseas. What kid does that?

The kindness, generosity, warmth, maturity and patriotism of this kid is astonishing. This past summer Ben decided he wanted to go to the war memorials in DC with his mom and grandparents (his grandfather is a vet) to salute the soldiers who fought and died for our country. The impact this one kid has had on the soldiers overseas can’t be overstated. Several soldiers have gone way out of their way to meet Ben.

We’re of course matching Ben 1-for-1 again this year. And sending him a small birthday present (shhh!) since he’s turning all the presents he was going to get into donations for the troops overseas. If you’d like to support Ben, you can paypal his mom whatever amount you like. Her paypal account is: brejoben at yahoo.com. If for some reason, you prefer US Post, you can send a check to his mom, Brenda Hinkle. Rt 1 Box 52L-1, Lost Creek, WV 26385.He’s not old enough to Chew More, but he sure is doing more.
