This morning I received a beautiful video from a young man and his family thanking me for a gift that I sent him about a week ago. The young man and his family wanted to let me know how much my gift meant to them and I literally started crynig like a big ole baby.  Take a look at the video.

I plan on making a video response back to them when ever I can get my conposure, but until then here is how all of this went down.

Before I went out to South Carolina, I got a phone call on my radio show at about 11:30 pm est from a young man who says that he is a huge fan of the show.  After talking with him a little while I asked him his age.  He stated he was 15 and said that he dad loves what I do but his mom wasn’t so into what I do.

We laughed a little and then we spoke about what his dreams were of the future.  He said he wanted to be a film maker and a photographer which I thought was very cool.  This is literally where the “Make My Kids Summer Dream Come True” Campaign started.

I felt a connection to the young man, I thought it was so cool that not only did his parents know that he was a fan of the show but they were OK with him listening because frankly they hear worse stuff on the streets and the street words are designed to harm not help.  The more we spoke the more I felt close to this young man as he was very well spoken.

After finding out that he was only 14 years old, I was stunned because of how well he spoke.  The brother spoke like he was in his 20s.  He was confident and knew what he was talking about and I felt moved to help him so we sent the brother a fully loaded video camera package!


The young mans name is Sadaria Haliburton and what we purchased for him was Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3 Micro Four Thirds Digital Camera Body (Black) with 64GB Card. A Panasonic H-FS45150K Lumix G Series Lens (Black) + Battery + Backpack Case + Flash + Tripod + HDMI Cable + The Other Accessories that you see above.

The family was very greatful and I have to say it, the dad has what seems to be the perfect family.  He has an amazingly beautiful wife who not only seems supportive but didnt over talk him or the son.

I envy this man because he has such a beautiful woman and a well spoken handsome son and he they seem to be exactly waht I talk about.  A family a unit and what I hope for the Haliburtons is that they take my act of kindness and turn it around to do that same act of kindness for someone else.  There are a lot of kids in the US right now who dont have the wonderful family that Sandarias has.  Who dont have the strong father that he has and the supportive mother.

You guys have to remember that the father and the son are fans of my show but the mom was like he go too dayum far sometimes, lol, but she still let her lil man and husband be men.  None of this, dont listen to him because I dont like it.  As a matter of fact, have you guys noticed how many mothers have called the show lately talking about how they let their sons watch the videos and listen to the live shows?  How man of them talk about the changes in their kids attitudes?

You can hate my guts all you want but you cant deny the changes in people after being exposed to me and the message!
