It wasn't all bad

10-year-old sells baseball card collection to raise money for kids with cancer

Brady Kahle's family has a motto: "If you have an opportunity to make a difference in this world and you don't, you're wasting your time." The Springfield, Massachusetts, 10-year-old takes that to heart, and when two of his friends were diagnosed with cancer a year ago, he jumped into action.

Kahle has collected baseball cards since age three, and decided to sell them to raise money for his friends, Peter Manzi, who was diagnosed with leukemia, and Landen Palatino, who was diagnosed with glioblastoma brain cancer and had to have surgery to remove a tumor. "I just had a lot of baseball cards and I wanted to help them out," he told 22News.

Kahle launched Cards for a Cause in February 2016, and so far, the charity has raised $13,000, with donations coming from as far as France, Mexico, and Canada. His mother, Jessie, said she's proud of his selflessness and for realizing that while he loves his baseball cards, "they are just things, and I can help somebody."
