We had a busy day here today at NSSA! Young Tyler F came to visit the school and hang out with his good friend Tyler W. Tyler F is an amazing young man who has an organization and Facebook page called BirthdayBack. After requesting charity donations instead of birthday gifts for two consecutive years, BirthdayBack was created on Tyler’s 10th birthday to inspire kids to Celebrate by Giving.
Earlier this year he posted this to his Facebook page:
What a great kid! He was able to donate $900 to NSSA that he raised through BirthdayBack!
Today he came to visit and we were all thrilled to meet him. He even had a surprise meeting with New York Representative Steven Israel, who was also visiting the Martin C. Barell School this morning.
They exchanged contact information and Israel tweeted about their meeting. Tyler was very excited to know that 13,000 people were going to read about his Birthday Back organization!
He visited *our* Tyler’s classroom and hung out with the students for the afternoon.
We want to thank Tyler and his organization Birthday Back for the very generous donation he made to the school, and for just being an all-around great kid and role model!
