The money was raised by Mr. Sliepen­beek and his fa­ther col­lect­ing cans for an en­tire years. When asked how many cans he needed to col­lect $1,125, he replied, “A lot!” In ex­plain­ing his mo­ti­va­tion, Mr. Sliepen­beek re­lated, “Make A Wish re­did my room. They made it more ac­ces­si­ble and put in a wall unit with a big TV, a lap­top, and an Xbox. It's great be­cause now my friends can come over and it's re­ally cool.” More in­side.
