Pint-size presenter helps raise $130,000 for Phoenix charity

Harrison More’s brother Henry was born with a rare chromosomal defect that rendered him blind and deaf from birth. He was also diagnosed with autism at age three. Despite these obstacles, he has made incredible progress since his family moved from Canada to Phoenix - thanks to a local Phoenix charity called Foundation for Blind Children.

During a recent fundraiser, the CEO of Foundation for Blind Children asked eight-year-old Harrison to speak about his brother, which Harrison did with aplomb, generating over $130,000 in donations in just 30 minutes. The Foundation serves over 2,000 people per year, and relies heavily on donations to keep the doors open. The CEO was thrilled with Harrison’s performance, stating that “It’s always hard to put your whole night in the hands of an 8-year-old boy, but boy, Harrison More, he blew it out of the water."
