On his fifth birthday Amadeus, instead of receiving gifts from his friends at his birthday party, asked his friends to donate to the Malawi Water Project. He wanted to help his great aunt Helen make sure children in Malawi have clean water to drink. He raised $30 on his birthday and has donated that amount to the water project. Not only did he give up his birthday gifts from his friends, he has set an example for other children his age to help others less fortunate. The children in Malawi thank you, Amadeus.
