River Falls boy’s birthday gift is the act of giving
Kristy and Jason Anderson gave their almost-7-year-old son Gavin a choice this year when planning his birthday party.
Gavin, a River Fall Public Montessori first grader, could get the usual presents from his friends or ask them to donate money to an area nonprofit.
Gavin chose the latter.
“He was very cool about it,” said Kristy. “There was no resistance, no regret, no comments. He just decided and once he decided he was good to go with it.”
