Waconia boy sets sights on fighting malnutrition in Haiti
It started with a letter to the mayor.
“I weigh 42.2# and I am 6 years old and I want to have a big party at the city park for Martin Luther King Jr. and I want everybody to make cupcakes. Your friend, Amasiah Jerome Stangret. I want to raise money for the kids in Haiti.”
The letter touched Waconia Mayor Jim Sanborn.
“You get a letter like that and you have to respond – it’s just such a cool thing,” Sanborn said.
Sanborn reached out to the Stangret family and got the ball rolling.
