On Sunday, the 16th Annual Edgewater Fall Brawl Tennis Tournament came to a close. The special thing about the tournament is that every year, it teams up with a charity to work with, and this year, ten year old Habib September's Lucky Pennies charity was selected.
Habib started Lucky Pennies when he was six years old, and his first project was to send shoes to children who walked barefoot to school in Africa. Since then, he's helped Hurricane Sandy victims, as well as Tornado victims in Oklahoma, and the reason he does it, is simple.
"I decided to start it because I thought everyone can make a difference in someone else's life," he said. "It's like there's people over here, they're not doing to well in school, another guy comes up, and he can help them out, and then they have mathematics for life. I just like helping people. It feels nice when you do it."
This year, Habib raised over $2,000 for his charity. The money will be used for future disaster relief.
