He hero from our book, The Boy with the Pink Hair, was born that way — but the hero from this story gave himself pink hair to raise money for breast cancer awareness!
10-year-old Austin Jones wanted to raise money to help his bff's mom, who is living with breast cancer.
To raise money the 4th grader distributed information about cancer and asked for donations. His goal was to raise $110 but in less than 2 weeks Austin collected $180!
And he isn't done yet! Austin hopes to build a booth in front of the Safeway store, and raise $500 next October, which is breast cancer awareness month.
Looks like there are TWO incredible boys with pink hair!

Yesterday Kim Kardashian blogged about the El Lay Children's Hospital on her website.
The ex Mrs. Humphries wrote:
"I can’t believe it’s almost December. This year has flown by so fast! Last December I went to LA Childrens’ Hospital and spent some time with the amazing kids there. I remember last year they were all so upbeat and smiley despite being in the hospital for the holidays. I think sometimes we forget just how lucky we are to be able to spend the holidays with our friends and family, so seeing how brave and spirited these kids were was really uplifting. It was really an inspirational visit for me and I’d love to go back this December again and visit everyone."
Sources tell us Kim has had another visit planned for a long time and "she didn't want to cancel on these children and she also doesn't want people to think she's just doing it for positive press, because that's not the case!"
And there you have it!
We're sure she's gonna make lots of kids happy next month!
