11-Year-Old Spends The Summer Mowing Lawns To Raise $16K For Tornado Victims

There are all kinds of kid businesses young people can run in order to rake in a little extra cash — lemonade stands, babysitting gigs, and the time-honored trade of lawn work. But while most whippersnappers take on summer work to rustle up some green for spending money, one Texas boy mowed a whole lot of lawns and gave all the money he made to help victims of the Moore, Okla. tornado.

We’re not talking a few extra dollars here and there, either — a summer’s worth of work pulled in about $16,000 for the 11-year-old boy’s hard work. That’s a good chunk of change that could go toward a car, or a college education. But it’s instead earmarked to help others, reports
