10-year-old boy has found an effective way to raise money for his sick friend
A ten-year-old boy has just laid an excellent example of what true friendship is. After becoming famous unexpectedly, this young man is now using it to help his sick friend.
Collier Rule was just another ten-year-old at a Foo Fighters concert, but the boy had no idea how his life was about to change.
Rule had gone to the concert with his mother, Jennifer Dlugolecki, and a friend. With his mom’s permission, Rule made his way close to that stage where he began to play air guitar and caught the eye of the rock band’s lead vocalist, Dave Grohl.
Grohl invited the little guitarist to come up and play one for real. Rule introduced himself to the rock star, and when he was asked what songs he knew, the boy replied:
“I know a lot of Metallica songs.”
The amused audience burst out laughing at Rule’s confidence, and when Grohl's big blue Gibson was placed around the boy’s neck, it went down as far as his knees.
A PRODIGY SHOCKS THE MASTERS
When Rule started playing Metallica’s “Enter Sandman,” the laughter was replaced by cheers. Rule struck the guitar like a pro, and he wasn’t intimidated by the thousands of “Foo Fighters” Missouri fans in the audience. Even an impressed Grohl raised his hands in respect while yelling to the crowd:
"That's all we know! He knows more than us!"
Rule thrilled everyone further by performing two more Metallica songs- "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)" and "Wherever I May Roam."
After the breathtaking rendition, Grohl gave Rule the guitar, and the excited fan told Inside Edition:
"It was really exciting. Most musicians probably would not do that."
Dlugolecki said she wasn’t surprised when she saw her son on stage because he’s always on his guitar at home. The Foo Fighters posted a clip of Rule’s moment, and the video has gone viral.
A SELFLESS FRIEND
However, Rule plans to do so much more with his newfound fame. He plans to help raise money for his eight-year-old friend, Bo, who has a disease with no cure.
According to a GoFundMe page set up by Rule and his mom, Bo’s disease is so rare that the National Institute of Heath named it after him. The money raised will be used to cover Bo’s medical expenses.
A CANCER PATIENT HELPS OTHERS
Another ten-year-old boy making a difference is Brandon Bolger from Carlow in Ireland. Despite being diagnosed with cancer last year, Bolger kickstarted a fundraising drive to buy a tractor to raise funds for other children receiving care in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin.
Bolger has been receiving intense chemotherapy treatments but has not let that stop his passion for good deeds. A family friend found out about the initiative and created a GoFundMe campaign that, as at last month, had raised 3,000 euros out of their 5,000 euros goal.
A SENIOR CITIZEN RISKS HIS LIFE FOR A GOOD CAUSE
Meanwhile, helping out is not restricted to age, as shown by Richard Keller, a 90-year-old World War II veteran who rappelled down a skyscraper to raise money for cancer research.
