An Inspiring Disney Trip Giveaway

CupOfGood - Disney Trip

If you received an all-expense-paid trip to Disneyland, would you give it away? This includes airfare, mind you! Well, this wonderful boy did. In fact, inspired by the  red paper clip experiment, Brendan used Facebook and his toy soldier to trade up for credits and gift certificates, where he eventually accumulated enough for a Disney Trip  giveaway. The fun part: On Memorial Day, he randomly selected the name of a fallen soldier’s daughter and surprised her family with this lovely present in their Massachusetts home!

So many factors blow me away here:

  • There are 800 Million active users on Facebook, how many are giving away prizes out of the kindness of their hearts?
  • He did not just donate his own money, he found a creative way to put a prize package together with the help of a community and social media.
  • He honored not only one soldier, but he also reminded the world of the sacrifice that our soldiers and their families go through when they are on duty
  • He is 9 years old.
