11-Year-Old Clinton Boy Raises Money For Disease Research

CLINTON (CBS) – Since he was four years old, Matthew Pulnik of Clinton has been all about giving.

He had a lemonade stand to raise money for victims of Hurricane Katrina and has not stopped trying to help others.

This past weekend he put on another fundraiser, a carnival in his backyard, and in just three hours he raised $1600.

This time the money will help with research for a rare disease called Diamond Blackfan Anemia.

Some of his family friends have the disease and he’s now putting his efforts to raise awareness and work towards a cure.
