Six-Year Old Boy Asks Santa For Most Unusual Gift
Each night this week, your kids have a chance to talk with Santa Claus on Big Frog 104 at 6:00 p.m. Sometimes kids ask for some unusual gifts. Here is the story of a heartwarming Christmas gift wish for Santa from a boy in Eat Northport, New York.
According to huffingtonpost.com:
"While most children ask Santa to bring them toys for Christmas, one little boy from East Northport, N.Y., has a special request: He wants an Xbox and a prosthetic arm so he can play it.
Christopher Kiezek, 6, who was born without part of his left arm, just wants to look like the rest of the kids in his neighborhood, his family told CBS New York.
However, the family’s insurance would not cover the cost of the new limb because it is not crucial to his life, according to Fox 5 News.
A close family friend, Robert Jackson, was so moved by Christopher’s request that on Wednesday he started a fundraising campaign on GoFundMe.com. His goal was to raise $25,000.
However, once Christopher started gaining attention from the fundraising page, he immediately took his Christmas wish back because he didn’t want to be noticed for his disability, Fox 5 reported.
But his wish has been granted. By Friday evening, the campaign had raised more than $53,000, and Christopher’s parents plan on telling him it’s from Santa, the news outlet said."
