There's a 10-year-old boy in Philadelphia named Evan, and three years ago he adopted a cat named Macha from a local cat rescue shelter called City Kitties. (--Evan's last name wasn't given.)
--After seeing the shelter, he decided he wanted to help out. So he donated a bunch of allowance he'd saved . . . $46.75 . . . and told them, quote, "I saved this money to help you help cats."
--And each of the last three years, Evan has done the same thing. He's gotten a raise in his allowance . . . so his donation has gone up. He gave $63 in 2010 . . . $97 in 2011 . . . and $110 last year. He also convinced his parents to match his donation.
--Evan sends a handwritten letter with each donation, and they've all been posted online. People were so moved by his gesture that they've donated in his name.
--City Kitties gets hundreds of dollars in donations each year from people who saw Evan's letters . . . and shelters in Arizona, Tennessee, California, and Canada have also gotten donations in his name.
