This is perhaps the most surprising. What all the tabloids write about. Seven-year-old Londoner Charlie Simpson got on his bike on Sunday and went to the park, planning to raise some £500. In the park, he asked vacationers to donate to help Haitian children. The boy circled the park seven times - and this is about eight kilometers. By Wednesday (January 27), he had raised $275,000 (more than Madonna donated).
On his website, which Charlie created to collect donations, he wrote: “I want to ride a bike to raise money for Haiti because there was a big earthquake and a lot of people died. I want to raise money to buy food, water and tents for everyone in Haiti.”
