Most 12-year-olds who get their hands on a hundred bucks would probably use it to buy a new video game system. Not Carson Robinson. This upstanding young man gave his cash to the Dutchess County SPCA. Beginning in April, he collected used cans that he either solicited from friends, family, and members of his church community or found littering the ground. Each week, he cashed them in. By the start of July, he had a total of 4,400 cans. And the grand monetary total? $220. His donation bought food and supplies for the nearly 225 homeless cats living at the shelter.
