Cameron Evans, age 7, is surrounded by his Beanie Baby™ collection just prior to donating all seven bags of them to the LLU office of international affairs for the toys to be distributed to less fortunate children in other countries. Cameron says he wants to bring happiness to other children. He was moved to help when he and his mother, Kelsie Evans, saw television coverage of poverty in other countries. They found out about the LLU office of international affairs on the Internet and drove from their home in Cathedral City to make the donation. Ms. Evans began collecting the Beanie Babies™ 10 years ago, and Cameron had been slowly earning the stuffed toys for his own as rewards.
