Cambridge child in need of a martial arts outlet
Seven-year-old Marcus lives with his grandparents in Cambridge.
When he is not in school, he loves watching cartoons and enjoys karate action TV shows. However, this is Marcus’ only form of entertainment because his grandparents live on a fixed income. His grandparents notice that because he watches too much TV on his spare time, he is not ver y productive.
They would like to see their grandchild spend time away from the TV and go outside of his room to play, make new friends and exercise. His grandparents would like to sign him up for Karate lessons and would like to buy him a martial arts outfit and sneakers for Christmas.
Since they live on a fixed income, this purchase is above their ability.
