Dear MEL Topic Readers,

The boy who spent a year in a tent for charity

An eleven-year-old English boy is about to spend 365 nights in a tent in his garden. He has endured rainy, windy, and freezing nights since the start of Britain’s first lockdown last March in the small tent. On some rainy nights, all of his stuff soaked wet. He had to ask himself why he was doing it on some nights even though he had been quite determined. His intention was to raise money for his local hospice where his neighbor friend, who had given him the tent to have an adventure with it, had been cared for. His initiative received wide support from many people including high-profile athletes and media personnel.

Just like Captain Sir Tom Moor’s 100-lap walk of his garden before his 100th birthday to raise money in aid of the health services charitable wing, some people in England seem to have a strong will to raise money for good cause. Also, people in Britain seem to be willing to support such causes.

Enjoy watching the video and learn about what an eleven-year-old boy decided to do and how he accomplished his goal.
