6-Year-Old Boy Raises More Than $30,000 for Sick Friend [VIDEO]
Dylan Siegel is only six, but he’s already accomplished a lot. The first grader has raised over $30,000 for his best friend, Jonah Pournazarian, who has been diagnosed with glycogen storage disease type 1B , a rare liver disorder that doesn’t have a cure. When Dylan’s parents suggested a lemonade stand, he rejected the idea, and said, “I want to write a book.”
‘Chocolate Bar’ is a handwritten and illustrated book, which has been available for about two months. The book’s title is a term that means “cool.” The 16-page book opens with the phrase, “Disneyland is so chocolate bar.”
So far sales of the book, and chocolate bars donated by Whole Foods, have racked up more than $30,000. Dylan’s father told ABC that they hope to raise $1 million.
