WHY chocolate bar, The Book, should be next up on your reading list... The word inspiring doesn't do it justice.
When I grow up I want to be like Dylan Siegel; he's 7-years old. Dylan wrote Chocolate Bar, the book to raise money to find a cure for his best friend Jonah's rare liver condition, GSD Type 1 b. This is more than just a fairy tale, so far the book has raised $750,000, which is #sochocolatebar (AKA TOTALLY AWESOME)! The boys are well on their way to reaching their 1 million dollar mark! All money raised goes directly to Jonah’s research fund at the University of Florida where his doctor, GSD expert Dr. David Weinstein, is actively seeking a cure that will have applications for other liver-related diseases as well.
Look out Batman and Robin and make way for Dylan and Jonah! These two elementary school boys are the type of heroes we're introducing children to as part of The Greater Purpose Project: School Heroes Tour. The #GPP School Heroes Tour is a "get of your chair throw your hands in the air" assembly that introduces children to real life super heroes like Dylan and Jonah, in addition to celebrities who are using their star power for the greater good. The purpose of the assembly is to inspire children to discover how they can use their own talents and differences as super powers to help others!
