Generous 4-H Participant Donates $800 Auction Proceeds to Lighthouse Charity

Lincoln Schnell, a dedicated young 4-H participant, demonstrated immense generosity by donating the entire $800 proceeds from selling his self-raised rooster at the 4-H auction to the Lighthouse charity. Having nurtured the roosters as part of his 4-H project, Lincoln had long desired to contribute to the Lighthouse’s cause, perhaps by providing canned food. However, when his father mentioned the idea during the fair, Lincoln seized the opportunity and decided to donate the auction earnings instead. The unexpected success of the sale left him pleasantly surprised and deeply grateful to the buyer for their contribution. Inspired by this experience, Lincoln aspires to engage in more charitable endeavors in the future.
