30 Jun Blow Out The Candles and Donate It All!
That’s what Victoria and Joseph Benesch, ages 11 and 10, did. They donated every birthday penny to the Tyler Robinson Foundation through our friend Geoffrey Alintoff and his Bar Mitzvah Project.
Yes, that’s a whopping $780 donated to help families battle the unseen costs of childhood cancer!
Even before they started planning their joint party, Victoria decided to give all her birthday money to TRF. And although it took a little more thought (because this is serious birthday business after all) younger brother, Joseph did the same.
These two young humanitarians also happen to be very musical. Victoria is the lead singer in No Left Turns. She loves music and is an accomplished pianist. Joseph just started playing the guitar.
Joy Benesch, Victoria and Joseph’s mother told us, “The kids watched the TRF and Imagine Dragons videos and they were so moved by Tyler’s story and the families that are being helped. We don’t know anyone who has pediatric cancer, so they don’t completely understand what it’s all about they just knew that they had to do something to help. I have been inspired by the generosity of my own children.”
With children like Victoria, Joseph and Geoffrey – who you will read more about in an upcoming article, our future really is as bright as their collective birthday candles… and generosity.
We are forever We won’t hide our faces from the light Eliminate the space between us It’s who we are
Who We Are, Imagine Dragons
