Boys raise bucks for other kids

St. Patrick’s school students Benjamin Gyorkos, Stephan Brulot-Sawchyn and Alex Morrow were inspired by Free the Children

Three Oak Bay boys found a way to share their toys with kids around the world.

St. Patrick’s school students Benjamin Gyorkos, Stephan Brulot-Sawchyn and Alex Morrow were inspired by a Free the Children presentation they heard at school and decided to do something to help. They made a plea to their friends, families and the school community for used toys and books and held a giant garage sale. The kids also donated some of their own toys to the cause.

Through their hard work, the boys managed to raise more than $1,000 which they presented to Free the Children, an organization that works both domestically and internationally to empower and enable youth to be agents of change.
