girl sells hot cocoa to raise funds to help kids in wheelchairs

Seven-year-old Santii Patel Spent her day off on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, fundraising. She charged $1 for a cup of hot cocoa at Bill Gray’s in Greece, for a good reason.

“I’m going to sell hot cocoa to raise money for a swing for kids who have wheelchairs,” Santi said, “So they can have fun and feel the wind in their hair.”

Santi has been working toward raising enough money since last summer, and this is is the third event she’s hosted. The type of swing she’s saving up for would be for children who are in wheelchairs, or in motorized chairs, so they could wheel up a ramp and lock in, then be able to swing.
