In February, Brendan Haas, 9, set out to earning an all-inclusive trip to Disney World.
On Memorial Day, the Kingston, Massachusetts, boy gave away the trip — to the family of a fallen soldier.
Haas and his mother, Melissa set up "A Soldier for a Soldier" on Facebook, initiating an attempt to trade up from a toy soldier to a Disney trip.
Inspired my the man who traded up from a paper clip to a house, Haas decided to trade a toy soldier up until he could help a military family.
With each trade, he amassed larger and larger items with his growing nationwide network.
Through his trading, he collected almost $900 worth of Disney gift certificates, airfare, and a stay at a Disney resort hotel.
On Memorial Day, he pulled Liberty Hope Steele's name out of a hat. The 2-year-old girl is the daughter of U.S. Army Lieutenant Timothy Stelle, 25, who was killed in Afghanistan last August.
"I think it would make them a lot happier," Haas told WHDH-TV of donating the trip to the Steele family.Read More »from Nine-year-old boy gives away Disney World trip to family of fallen soldier
