Brendan Baker is 13 years old, 24 pounds, and 27 1/4 inches tall. He was born with Desbuquois Syndrome which is a rare form of dwarfism. Brendan has been inspiring people everywhere with his enthusiasm, and generous heart for others. Instead of getting birthday presents like most other kids would want, Brendan chose to give up his presents, in lieu of donations to the Children’s Miracle Network. After his grandfather suggested the idea, Brendan loved it so much he ran with it and started his own fundraiser. He partnered with the Children’s Miracle Network Fundraiser” on GoFundMe, which is a crowd funding site.
In the beginning Brendan hoped to raise $3,000, but when people heard his sweet intentions they wanted to help even more and he has raised $34,230. Brendan is so happy he will be giving the hospital a big cheque for the kids. He told ABC News that he wanted to “help the kids at the hospital feel better, and give them toys to make them happy.”
