Reading for Wheelchairs

Friend Magazine, 2017/03 Mar

In February I decided to read to people in my ward and my relatives for 10 cents a minute and donate all the money for a wheelchair through the LDS Humanitarian Services.

I got the idea from a story in the February 2015 Friend about Zach’s lemonade stand. I wanted to combine service and my reading talent to earn enough money for a wheelchair.

I have read 414 minutes and earned $208! Some people donated extra money, and some people let me read to them over video chat!

Sometimes it was tiring to read for a long time, but I kept on reading because I knew that is what Jesus wanted me to do.
