Aidan Thomas Anderson is my Godson and I couldn’t be more proud of his incredible heart and natural talent to share his “living to give” philosophy. “My mission is to impart the joy and necessity of giving to all ages” says Aidan.
Aidan’s love of harmonica began when he was 7 years old which led to his idea of helping others and now at age 16 (as of 2017), he’s helped raise millions of dollars for over 400 non profits and individuals in need by partnering with them. His website is Aidan Cares.
