Not only that she has earned a whopping pile of cash in the amount of $19,500 on the streets, but because of the social media posts, she made national headlines when People Magazine picked up her story.
The story has generated donations from far away and even from international donations have been flushing her way.
Stephanie Brigger, Vice President of Development of Scottish Rite Hospital has received a letter in the mail with a check from an unnamed sender who was so impressed with Addie’s gratitude and has mailed a $50,000 check in her name.
“I am almost speechless because I am the one who opened it, The anonymous donor wrote about seeing Addie and the pictures of her and then seeing her running. That’s a lot of casts and a lot of prosthetic devices and every little bit and big amounts help us do what we do.” Stephanie said in a statement.
Despite the hefty cash donations she has earned for Scottish Rite Hospital, Addie remained humble and said, “I think all the kids are going to be happy, and they can get out of the hospital faster,”
That a heart made out of gold.
Thank you, Addie!
