I’m going to tell you why my Dad is awesome.

So as we all know, my dad is pretty awesome.

Today though, my dad reminded me of just how awesome he really is.

I read my dad’s post about his relationship with his Elijah, a young kid who he mentors who has now become a great little addition to the family.

To sum it up- Elijah was connected to my dad through a wonderful organization called Amachi. While Elijah is lucky enough to have my dad, many children still need help and the organization’s funding has been cut. My dad has asked his readers to donate. My dad himself promised to match donations up to $1000. Tears were in my eyes by the end of the story- and then I remembered- this was my Dad. And then the tears were really in my eyes.

Today my dad posted this picture. Elijah and my dad delivering a check for over $5,000 to the Amachi organization. And hopefully this is just the first of many checks.
