Four-year-old raises $1,800 for kids in hospital

Four-year-old raises $1,800 for kids in hospital

One little boy is going above and beyond to bring a little happiness to kids in the American Family Children's Hospital.

News 3 first brought you the story of 4-year-old Corbin Sullivan last month, when he raised more than $300 in two days on a "Go Fund Me" page. After spending some time at the American Family Children's Hospital, Corbin told his parents he wanted to deliver balloons to other children there. Now, a few weeks later, he has raised $1,795.

"I think I'm in shock still," mom Amanda Sullivan said. "I'm so thankful. What a way for the community to pull together and show Corbin that anything is possible, and you can go above and beyond."

Amanda says they received donations through the web page from across the state and the country, with money coming in from places as far away as Boston. With that money, Corbin bought more than 80 balloons and dozens of gifts and supplies on the hospital's wish list.
