My 11 year old daughter, Maya, has the best heart. She is so kind and giving, even to strangers in need, and puts others before herself. Her grandma (my mom) is a type I diabetic and is still a huge fan of Bret’s, even at 63 years old. She and I have gone to 2 of his concerts here in AZ, one at the AZ State Fair and the charity concert in Phoenix last December at Celebrity Club Theater and had a great time.
Maya made drawings and sold them to family and friends last year to make money to donate to charity. She took $100 and chose 5 angels off of the Christmas tree to buy gifts for.
Last weekend, Maya had a garage sale collecting bags of clothes and toys from home and donated 75% of proceeds to 3 charities (Diabetes Association in honor of her grandma, animal shelter and Phoenix Children’s Hospital). She raised over $100 for each charity. My mom donated some of her household items for the sale as she was so proud of Maya. Attached is a picture of Maya at her sale last Saturday.
I am so proud to have a such a caring, selfless daughter at such a young age. All she wants to do it help people and even though she cannot do much, every little bit helps. I am so proud of her.
Bret is amazing with all he does, his charity work and his support of the military. Also performing so frequently while managing his diabetes. I wish the world had more giving people like Bret.
