This morning on the Today Show I watched a segment about a very inspiring 13 year old American who has started the biggest basketball shoot-a-thon in the world! What motivated this kid to do this? While watching a video on AIDS in Africa, he realized the kids werent any different from him other than their suffering. He decided to shoot free throws on World AIDS Day, Dec. 1, to raise money which helped orphan 8 children. Since 2004, he has started shoot-a-thons to raise enough money to build a school in Zambia, AFRICA, which was the regions first high school, which will someday hold 1,000 students and house orphaned students. His next goal for this years shoot-a-thon? To build a medical lab in Zambia.
