“You can never be too young to make a difference in the world”
The above quote is what Dylan Siegel’s dad said after being inspired by his son.
Eight year old Dylan from Los Angeles decided to raise money after his best friend Jonah got sick with Glycogen Storage Disease (GSD Type 1b), a rare liver condition.
Dylan wrote a book, which he sold with the intention of raising as much money as possible to help find a cure for his best friend. He started selling the book, titled ‘Chocolate Bar’ at a school event in November 2012, where he made over $5,000 in just a few hours.
In December 2014 Dylan reached the massive total of $1 million dollars.
