I love this little boy. He is my hero today. Charlie Simpson, THANK YOU !

A young British schoolboy has raised nearly 100,000 pounds ($160,000) for Haiti's relief effort. Seven-year-old Charlie Simpson was so upset by the devastating images of Haiti's deadly earthquake that he asked his mother if she could help him set up a sponsored bicycle ride around his local park in west London. Charlie originally hoped to raise 500 pounds ($800) for UNICEF's Haiti appeal with Sunday's 5-mile bike ride but his Internet page was flooded with donations.
