boy1Jan 21, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Nine year old Isaac Saldan from Craycroft Elementary school might not have made a big contribution for the treatment of congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the Tucson shooting in Arizona, but it was definitely the most genuine and an honest one. The little Arizona boy sold some his toys and other possessions to his school friends, to gather $2.85, which he sent to the ailing lady for her treatment.

She put the little amount of money that he collected into an envelope, where he wrote “Get well Soon”. His mother Aracely Saldana had no clue about what his son was upto, until her school teacher emailed her told her that she caught the boy selling off his boys, and so she took his bag away. However, when her son gave her the explanation, she was almost into tears. She told a reputed source that Isaac Saldan has a great heart, with the habit of landing into trouble for doing good things to others and that is what makes her so proud as a mother. Isaac Saldan told to a reputed source that as he was taking a walk with his dog and his brother, he saw on TV that a little girl and Gabrielle Giffords were badly injured and were hospitalized. He was so shocked to see that people carry guns in Tuscon. He wanted to do something in his own way to help her out.

Mark Kelly, Gabrielle Giffords’ husband, was extremely touched by the philanthropy on the part of Isaac Saldan. When he said that he would like to give his money back, the little boy said that he really does not want to get the money back, as he thinks that she really needs it. Isaac Saldan said that he feels good as Mark Kelly and Gabrielle Giffords, are happy with what he did.
