Today’s Brilliance from Jack Henderson

Jack is an amazing six year old who started drawing pictures in return for donations to the Sick Kids’ Friends Foundation, a foundation supporting the hospital his baby brother regularly visits due to chest problems. Jack came up with the idea after a family friend bought a drawing from him for 20p at a craft fair and has since raised over £;32,000. We loved his story and wanted to highlight what he’s doing, even if he’s only 6 years old. So, here’s Jack’s advice for others, as he shared it with his father….

My advice for others…

  • Don’t jump into water and kill yourself.
  • Do good at Judo.
  • Be good at school, don’t lose golden time and the golden party.
  • Don’t cry too much.
  • Remember to share with people and be nice.
  • Remember to share your food with everyone.
  • Remember to learn to drive and eat your chocolate.
  • Always cuddle, love and look after your Mummy &;; Daddy. Jump on them.

On growing up

  • Remember to buy a job.
  • Remember to try your hardest, you might win an award.

For girls

  • You can be a rockstar too if you want.
  • Remember to have a baby – have ten.

On drawing

  • Try your hardest skills at drawing, don’t give up.
  • Learn drawing by doing dot to dot.
  • Try hard to colour in the lines and not make a mess.

Jack Henderson

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.
