11-year-old raises $150k for Make-A-Wish

World

An 11-year-old boy in Colonie, New York has raised more than $150,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 

 Luke Hoag was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor when he was just 16-months-old. When he was 3, Make-A-Wish sent Hoag to Disney World. 

 Since then, he’s helped raise money for the foundation by collecting letters to Santa and delivering them to Macy’s. 

 For each card, Macy’s donates $2 to Make-A-Wish. This year, Hoag collected 77,000 letters, totaling $154,000. 

 Hoag credits the Hoosick Falls community for helping him reach his goal.
