The Funaro Family: Teaching Kids About Money

James is 8 years old and wore a tie for over 300 days to raise money for the Make A Wish Foundation. As time passed, he kept increasing his personal goal to raise money for Make a Wish. The foundation arranged for James’s donation to fund the wish of a little boy, who is the same age as James, to take a trip to Hawaii with his family.

James raised over $11,000.00 for “Make a Wish” and still continues to fund-raise for the foundation.

He got the idea from watching his mom giving money to different organizations when she would go shopping.
