With nearly one in four homes threatened by mortgage debt in the United States, one young boy took the threat of foreclosure head on. A 12 year old Wisconsin boy made national news this week when he raised enough money to prevent his grandmother’s home from being taken in foreclosure.
Big Dreams Come True
Noah Lamaide is just an average 12 year old boy from Wisconsin who played a key role in an adult problem. After his grandmother suffered several illnesses and fell behind on her mortgage payments, the bank came to collect. Once learning that his grandmother’s home was at risk of foreclosure, Noah decided to take to the internet in efforts to raise money for the home.
Already the proprietor of another community service project website, he promoted his cause among internet strangers and asked for help. His website, called Noah’s Dream Catcher Network, raised $10,000 over the course of a few short months. The money was enough to settle his grandmother’s mortgage debts and stop the foreclosure process.
