SPOKANE, Wash. — In a world filled with its fair share of dark spots, a six-year-old boy from Spokane is looking to make things a bit brighter.

During his winter break, Blaine Binger held a hot cocoa stand in the Eagle Ridge neighborhood, raising money for charity. Blaine raised over $900 over the seven days he was selling hot cocoa.

Earlier this week, Blaine picked a charity to give the money to. The $900 he raised will go to Family Promise of Spokane.

Blaine’s mom said she is working on a time after school to take him to Family Promise of Spokane to deliver the money. She says it will happen soon.
