A young boy has a significant impact.
"Learn from Cooper. Give. Be benevolent. And keep others in mind," stated Dwayne Durham, a Salvation Army Corps Officer. "He is acting in that way."
10-year-old When he was just five years old, Daniel "Cooper" Thomas began by opening doors in restaurants for patrons. The persons he performed the deeds for were quick to tip.
Cooper came upon a homeless man four years later who was holding a sign requesting donations. After giving the man $5, he was motivated to continue doing good actions for his neighborhood.
Cooper's mother, Kathryn Thomas, claimed that after that Cooper decided to contribute all of the gratuities he received for holding doors for patrons in restaurants.
Cooper explained to TV20 how quickly he was able to raise that money and select the appropriate nonprofit organization to receive the donations.
Cooper said that "sometimes they'd give me like five dollars or like twenty dollars."
He succeeded in reaching his five hundred and forty-five dollar target in just three months. His family, who encouraged him and matched his generosity, also contributed.
Coop chose to donate to the Ocala Salvation Army on his tenth birthday. Cooper's gifts, according to Corps Officer Major Dwayne, enabled the Center of Hope to provide food and shelter for forty nights. Durham presented Coop with a unique award.
“If everyone seized the chance as Cooper is and has done, the world would be a lot better,” shared Durham.
Because of Cooper's deeds of compassion, his pals are now eager to join him on his journey. Cooper is looking for his next community service opportunity in the meanwhile.
