#MiniMogul Dashai Morton Collects Water for Puerto Rico for HER Birthday
Dashai Morton celebrated her 12th bday on October 10th, and instead of gifts, she vowed to collect 500 cases water donations for Puerto Rico. She named the effort #ProjectGiveback. By her birthday two weeks later, she had 460 cases, and used birthday money to buy the remaining cases to reach her goal. “It makes me happy because I can help other people who don’t have what I have.”
Over a week later, Dashai has now collected more than 3,000 cases of water bottles along with non-perishable food items, baby formula and toiletries, according to Dashai’s mother
.Dashai said she visited Puerto Rico on a cruise with her grandmother before the storm hit and called it an amazing place. She said that trip made her want to help after seeing the devastation caused by the storm. “They need everything to help them to build back,” she said.The supplies will then be shipped to Aguadilla, Puerto Rico.
