Johnny's Teddy Bear Drive
When Johnny was seven-years-old, he needed to have kidney surgery. While he was in the Alfred I.duPont Hospital for Children, he received a Teddy Bear from his nurse. It touched him so much, that he wanted to give back to other children in the hospital and "Johnny's Teddy Bear Drive" was born. It is five-years-old now and growing every year. In 2009, he collected 98 teddy bears, and collected 1035 in 2012.
Please look at this inspiring website to see his video and photos and to appreciate his compassion and efforts in paying forward one act of kindness that continues to multiply thousand-fold.
