Scottish schoolboy Jack Henderson who accepted requests to draw pictures in return for donations to the Sick Kids’ Friends Foundation has become an international Internet sensation.
Jack came up with the idea after a family friend bought a drawing from him for 20p at a craft fair. He initially set a target of raising £100 to support the Edinburgh children’s hospital baby brother Noah, aged one, regularly attends with chest problems. That target was reached within a day and Jack went on to break further targets of £500, £1000 and £10,000. He has now raised over £32,000.
With over 500 picture requests, Jack had to stop taking new requests because he was so busy. He’s asking people who log on to his site (jackdrawsanything.com) and enjoy his pictures to make a donation to get him to his target.
